4 stars Another achingly gorgeous and melancholy piece of electronic post-rock from The Album Leaf. With impeccable production and performances, once again The Album Leaf stick to the Sigur Ros school of post-rock as opposed to the more ramshackle and rough around the edges variety practiced by Godspeed You Black Emperor or Mogwai. I agree with digdug's review that the electronic drums on this album are a particular treat - they're so hard to use in a way which doesn't just sound cheap and artificial, but here they prove to be an integral element of the sound. On the whole, it's not a revolutionary album, but it's still a winner in my book.
