2 stars The comparisson of "Stock" to Pink Floyd is, I think, contrived and somewhat lazy... just like most everything in this album. There is little here to distinguish it even amongst bands like it-- let alone a giant like Floyd.

As a collection of previously unleased material, "Stock" feels appropriately like a bunch of B-Sides, dusted off the shelf and given enough polish to stand on their own without being a total embarassment. There are a few lush arrangements and emotive moments, scattered between lots of airy filler which feels well-intentioned, but just can't muster the energy to be very engaging. RPWL is still struggling to find their sound here, and it shows; with few exceptions there isn't anything here on par with "Trying to Kiss the Sun", and even less so than the excellent "World Through My Eyes".

One for fans only.
