4 stars THE EVPATORIA REPORT are a Post-Rock band out of Switzerland. This album in particular is rated highly by Post-Rock fans so I decided to pick it up. I would describe the sound as cinematic, it's like I was listening to a movie instead of watching it. Lots of guitars and strings here, and it can go from calm to very powerful in a hurry. I just like how powerful the atmosphere is, this has such a full and lush sound to it.

"Prognoz" opens with atmosphere galore as different sounds come, go and hover. It kicks in heavily after 3 1/2 minutes then settles quickly with strings. Gentle guitar after 6 minutes. Beautiful section. Drums and bass join in after 7 minutes. This sounds so good. It kicks back in at 10 1/2 minutes. "Taijin Kyofusho" opens with the sound of a transmission between two parties and i'm sure one is in outer space. Gentle guitar joins in then strings and bass. Drums follow as it builds. Keys before 5 minutes. It settles a minute later yet it sounds urgent and it's building. Intense at 8 minutes. A calm 10 minutes in.

"Cosmic Call" opens with this repetitive guitar line. Strings then drums as it slowly builds. It settles before 4 1/2 minutes. The tempo picks up before 7 minutes then it kicks in. Settles once more and we get some spoken words 8 1/2 minutes in. "C.C.S. Logbook" opens with drums that fade out then guitar and drums take over. Great sound here and the tempo will shift throughout this tune. It stops abruptly to end it. "Optimal Region Selector" drifts along in a spacey manner. Drums 3 minutes in. Powerful sound before 5 minutes then it settles a minute later. It ends as it began. "Dipole Experiment" opens with strings as atmosphere rolls in and gets louder. Vocal melodies too. Emotional music right here.It stops at 5 1/2 minutes then atmosphere returns before we get a beat at 7 minutes with keys and strings. More vocal melodies follow. A moving track to say the least.

Easily 4 stars, and if your a Post-Rock fan it's essential listening.
