Gotta love the cover art.

BTW, pretty good for a first. A lot of first-timers write very sucky stuff, as mean as that may sound.

This promised soooo much more than it delivered. Thought it was going to be something truly spectacular and unique from the way it was hyped up, but then "This Fire" and "When the Night Falls Quiet" just stink it up. White Leaves is freakin' fantastic though, and Liquid Arms, Sirin and Hounds also rule.

It's like what Rowan says.

There seems to be 1 too many songs that don't live up to the rest on here. And once those great songs have been listened to for long enough. The album starts to get stale.

It's taken me a bit to appreciate the album after really enjoying the theatrics of their s/t. But it's definitely growing on me, the almost dream-like atmosphere of the album. Ian Kenny is such a fantastic vocalist.

This is a really good album. There's definitely more of a focus on synths and atmosphere. It sounds post rockish at times. It's not as good as Universes or their Self Titled but still solid.

It's sort of funny how this mirrors Karnivool's new one in a few ways. Both are more atmospheric, have interludes and Boy and Float are pretty similar.

The problem with this is the best songs they've written since their S/T didn't end up on the album. Glowing In The Streets, The Lake, Hornets and Redefining are better than most of the songs here and could've made this possibly their best album. They're crazy for not including them.

I actually think their first album is their worst. It's not bad but it's basically a poor man's Universes. And it's definitely Ian Kenny's worst vocal performance.

I really like the post rock/dream rock route they've gone. It really suits Kenny's voice.

The first album was awful to listen to. I'm not sure why it gets rated reasonably on here. But Universes is exactly what this band needed to become. The rest is now just gravy
