4 stars HARD TO EXPLAIN, EASY TO ENJOY

One of the best things in Post-Rock is the way you can enjoy it all alone and how many emotions you can feel with it through all their passages. The first time I played this album I was on my way to work and I simply loved the way it took me to one of the most calmed sensations I've ever felt.

A Silver Mt. Zion is definitely one of the most ambitious and interesting projects of Post-Rock itself, the vision of having a band that can own their own style and sound is very admirable to me and it's something very few bands can be proud at this moment.

"Born into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upwards" shows perfectly how to be progressive and magnificent without showing off your skills through odd time signatures or playing as fast as you can. It shows how you can express yourself in so many sound textures, spoken pieces and a very calmed mood. "Sisters! Brothers! Small Boats Of Fire Are Falling From The Sky!", "Built Then Burn (Hurrah! Hurrah!)", "Could've Moved Mountains...", "C'mon Come On" and "The Triumph Of Our Tired Eyes" are highlights that you simply cannot miss.

I know Post-Rock sometimes is hard to get into it, but I strongly recommend this record for those who have this same feeling about this subgenre and I guarantee you that you will have a grateful surprise.
