4 stars 01. Broken Chord Can Sing A Little

The band has echoes of PINK FLOYD, has a strong melody and is totally hypnotic. The piano is strong and has an interesting sound. At 4th minute a lot of sounds and words, like a conversation of pilots in airplanes. That's when Sophie's violin comes into play. The discourse around the scene is followed by the end of the track.

02. Sit In The Middle Of Three Galloping Dogs

Soon we see the monologue again. And enter the drums in the pace (but I do not know who plays it, since they are not credidatas, can't say if it's a programming drum). The violins lined up almost form a small hypnotic orchestra. A great tune!

03. Stumble Then Rise On Some Awkward Morning

The songs stand out as all in one, considering the great melodies of the violin. Totally classic in their sound, almost a small orchestra.

04. Movie (Never Made)

For the first time Efrim's vocals appear, and they are suffered, very suffered, full of emotion. And the acoustic bass from Thierry is very cool, gives a raw sound to the track.

05. 13 Angels Standing Guard 'Round The Side Of Your Bed

The 13 angels of the title are demonstrated by several voices, the band's sound is amazing, a calm, a beautiful sound, really beautiful. They actually managed to made the name of the track sings it The 7 minutes of the song compose a calm and pretty song.

06. Long March Rocket Or Doomed Airliner

What Should it be? (laughs)

07. Blown-Out Joy From Heaven's Mercied Hole

A striking bass riff and rhythmic cadence, fixed and hypnotic. The band built a song totally 'space', an escape to the senses. Or almost. Long and very quiet, the band is brilliant in its construction.

08. For Wanda This so-called Post Rock they play must be digested slowly, it is a peaceful sound of forms and layers of peace and beauty.

In fact, it's a 4.5
