5 stars An absolute fantastic work. The recording is warm and vibrant, and the live sound creates a listening experience completely unique to most prog recordings that have come out in recent years. The playing is polished the but the tapey sound gives it the gritty attitude it needs. Wonder use of dynamics, part mirroring and veering, solo work, stop and go's, and the bass...THE BASS. Wonderful all around. Influences are obviously taken from realms outside of prog ranging from stoner rock, to pop, to post rock, to ambient noise, and math rock. While it is easy to get lost in this epic track, it's not overwhelming. Parts are layered very naturally and you're never in one place for quite too long. I'm left wanting more, not just of the song, but of each intricate melody and harmony. The absence of vocals, while at first did seem like a void, left more room for instrumental development and part-writing experimentation. As a musician, I appreciate this more than any good hook or vocal run, so it does not hinder my review.

Overall a SPECTACULAR album. I recommend a listen on some quality speakers, as the feel of this album and it's production/engineering are just as important as all of its parts.
