4 stars I first heard about this band via Porcupine Tree, who recommended them on the website. Glad I checked them out because they're wield a great deal of aspects I look for in music.

First off, their sound is extremely unique. It is very Radiohead-esque, but with a clear progressive and post-rock tone. This is some of the most widely textured music out there. So much depth and so many layers, and the production meshes it all together perfectly. I really respect these guys for the way they blend so many styles together. There are hints of space rock, modern pop/rock, progressive, jazz, and so much else.

As far as musicianship goes, the album doesn't disappoint. The band really knows how to compose and incorporate their musical knowledge into their songwriting. The songs are never too overblown and drawn out, they always know where to draw the line which is something I admire.

What does the music feel like? Well for one thing it rocks! But not only does it rock, but it has all the pensive moments to even it out too. It's pretty accessible to the standard music listener (well maybe not, with a couple 7+ minute songs...) But it's got enough catchy moments to keep a Beatles fan satisfied and enough 7/8 and 6/8 moments to keep a prog fan satisfied. Anyways, to keep this review short, this is one of my top releases in recent years and I strongly recommend it!
