4 stars I've been anticipating this album ever since I heard "The Complexity of Light" last year. I've followed the band, due to their great sound and unique style; and I was really anxious to see if they could deliver content as good as their first album once again. They have.

"Impossible Landscape" is a great time for loss of a better word. The melodies are catchy, the guitar work is delicate and intricate, and it's really easy to listen to, while still being complex and somewhat mysterious. This album works, in my opinion. It works well. Songs flow flawlessly into one another. This album flew by for me, and by the time I knew it, it was over.

Some of the highlights of the album, are: great clear vocals, interesting and creative lyrical content, challenging music, excellent balance of soft/slow songs and fast/heavier songs, and awesome guitar riffs.

Some of my favourite songs are "Erratic", which opens the album perfectly, "Impossible Landscape", "What do you see?", and "It's just a ride".

The only negative thing that I could say about this album, is the lack of guitar solos. There are semi-solos, as I like to call them, which is a solo-like riff, backing the vocals, at a usually hectic or high-intensity section of a song, but few real guitar solos.

Either way, "Impossible Landscape" is a great album, which flows well, and is great for the ear. Recommended.

Grade: A-

Crimzonite | 4/5 |
