4 stars Ever since accidentally seeing them play live I have had a soft spot for Oceansize's evocative and complex music. At first I got into 'Effloresce' which I really enjoyed, but eventually felt didn't truly capture the magic that happened on stage that night. The same went for 'Everyone Into Position' and 'Music for Nurses'. I eventually stopped listening to them and it wasn't until this summer that I heard them again, and this time it was 'Frames'.

Everything I felt that Oceansize had in them when I first saw them has finally come out on this record. It's complex, it's beautiful and contemplative. Flowing seamlessly between the tracks, it fills you with a strong feeling of "wholeness" and purpose.

The one thing I can say against it is that it might be a bit slow for some and even if you are a fan some days it can be hard getting completely into.

This is Oceansize's greatest release to date. A must have for fans of the genre.
