5 stars Melancholy.

Thats the principle emotion I get when I listen to this music. It's a mosaic of fluttering fender strats, reserved, melodic pluckings, incredibly satisfying drumming and a backseat bass player that add the dimension of setting and presence. These four guys create some beautiful, awe inspiring unique music with just guitar, bass and drums.

The album was nothing like I expected it to be. I acquired it with a dubious perspective, I had thought that all of the good prog was behind us. (You can certainly see what I mean when you look at current offerings from Yes and the other classic bands) A fresh new perspective on music is what I gained from this album, and a new favourite album to add to the list.

Their sound is hard to articulate.. A mass of ups and downs and all arounds. It all flows so seamlessly that you are compelled to listen with all of your attention and follow. The bands strength is their profound sense of melody, which is really the center of all happenings, the rest just following and complementing the beautiful, soaring melodies.

Post-Rock is nothing to be afraid of.. Approach with an open mind to this album and you will be rewarded. This is solitary listening material.

I love you, EITS.
