5 stars Man, this album is blowing my mind as I listen to it. It sounds like Circa Survive meets A Perfect Circle, and those are two of my favorite bands. The production is a tiny bit off but I think that may be my horrible speakers.

Vocals are great, never over-the-top and always impressive. The guitar playing has an ethereal quality to it and it's simply marvelous. The rhythm section does a really nice job with the various tempo changes; rather than being abrupt and stopping your musical trip...the rhythm section carries you carefully into this ethereal dreamscape. It's something else, and I don't even do drugs!

Some parts are slightly metal, but don't let that turn you off. It's just a tiny bit heavier than Rush at their heaviest. Some parts are straightforward rock yet they manage to keep that surreal quality. I truly think this album just must be heard because this band has to be supported. There is so much they can do.

The tracks themselves are great and standouts would be Turning Sheep, River of Glass, and Katsushika. But this album has a great flow to it. I need to analyze the lyrics now, that's the only part I'll come back to in my review. Otherwise, there is a lot of beauty to be found here in the post-apocalyptic guitar playing style. Just check it out and enjoy.

Riuku | 5/5 |
