finally got round to buying this. came out around the same time as pg.lost so i pretty much dismissed it. i actually think this is really good. very samey though. it's basically explosions in the sky but rocked up. has the intricate, intertwining guitar lines that i love from explosions in the sky. and the reverb and atmosphere is stunning. i like how it flows. probably better than pg.lost's album really.
Sometimes I wonder if too much importance is put on pushing the envelope with every album / band / whatever. Obviously it's important, but sometimes good music is just good music, regardless of its deviation from what came before. This is a good example of that.
