4 stars US math rock band with heavy energy and Fripp-influenced guitars leading their music to unusual for post rock bands drive and tension. Complex and angular compositions and female lead guitarist excellent technique both can attract many instrumental rock lovers.

General musical structures are characteristic for math rock loops-like and cool calculated, but heavy rock energetic and complex musicianship still save this work from being repetitive or boring. Comparing with their debut, this second album is really better played and finished and contains much more mature music.

One of the style most rock-fuelled albums I ever listened. I am not sure how attractive could it be for math/post rock newcomers ( I always recommend very different from US-sound Sigur Ros early albums as the best introduction), but from another hand it can be really interesting for those searching on different instrumental prog-rock with high energy.

Really 3,5.
