5 stars SGM is a provoking band, stirring up emotions and ideas that for some is too much. It's very pretentious music, from a group of people I am not sure I would enjoy the company of(if any of the views they present on their albums are truly theirs). However, SGM is also one of the greatest bands to have graced this world.

Of Natural History is in my book the most challenging and impressive record I have ever heard. The production is so perfect that you hardly think of it as a record when listening to it, it's all so seamlessly mixed together that your focus never strays from the music and lyrics. To think that people can come together and create something this complex, intelligent(yes, I maintain that this is in fact a "smart" record) and beautiful, makes me wonder what music the future will bring.

The music of SGM is impossible to describe, and should be experienced, not told about. Their style always leave me with a sense of completeness, that the music couldn't possibly be in any other form.

There isn't much to add to the landslide of praise this album has received here, but mark my words: If you like this album, you will love it like no other.

A modern masterpiece in all senses.
