2 stars Innocence indeed.

Not exactly the most confident of records, this album is filled with many obvious shortcomings. The band fails to achieve the "ocean of sound" that is often a staple of the genre with little convincing. There is a general plainness to the majority of it, with little expansion on ideas.

The first track is probably the best on here, with the most endearing melody and coherent song structure. What else is there? Not much. We have some pretty bad guitar tones, uninspired drumming, riffs that lead to nowhere, and the typical signs of any band just starting out.

The band's naivety is more or less on full display here. I would not start here to get into post-rock or this band. There are far better albums to look for.
