4 stars Four long years fans of Red Sparowes waited for what they will bring. Let's see how it ended.

With interesting and original intro (and I heard few dozens of Post Rock albums), they continue in half "good old Post Rock" way, half "something new and original" way, while new elements and methods how to manage to sound interesting are prevalent. When compared to for example GYBE's "Lift Your Skinny Fists etc", this is like Red Sparowes are following completely different structure. Yes, album name is again extremely long (this is Post Rock trademark as I realized), there are no 4 tracks, each divided into intro, graduating, climax, noise, outro. Here, songs follows different path.

Again, PR release is not so much about facts, but about emotions, about feelings. And this is very well performed, composed album that offers many new ideas and proves that this genre has still something to say even in the world of Prog.

4(+), very nice one.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
