Album Rating: 3.5

Xeno, my man, gotta disagree with you that these guys were the "ugly ducklings" of the genre. It's Not Me, It's You is a fantastic debut for any post-rock debut, regardless of influence. Their sophomore album In Never Out was extremely mediocre and all kinds of safe, which I will agree with you being a sad state for this group. Key is a great as they do not rely on, as you said, overbearing crescendos and build-ups (admittedly their forte), but when they stretch areas of the album, like on "I Am A Destroyer," it is for the betterment of the album. And while, the stereotypical build-up is boring, they've done it very well previously, which is why In Never Out was completely bland and lacked any type of punch.

not genre-breaking but it's a good post-rock album.

Yeah basically. Sometimes that's good enough because it would be silly to expect every album you hear to be genre breaking

pg.99 is a much better band. This album is boring just like this band. It doesn't deserve more than a 2.5
