Not bad so far, but I prefer my post-rock a little more slow-paced.

Not quite as good as Sing the Word Hope... but awesome nonetheless. These guys and ASIWYFA and the future of post-rock imo.

Yeah it rules pretty hard. They've lost that "edge," and that quirky energy, but musically they've really improved. Pretty much a tie with Sing the Word Hope.

"Pretty much a tie with Sing the Word Hope."

nice, that's all I can ask for (I'd even settle for something significantly worse, that album was incredible)

Listening to this now, the opening is beautiful.

I already pre-ordered this, it's cool to have a listen to it in advance though. I really love Sing The Word Hope... and am
pretty excited.

Starting the stream now

EDIT: Seems a bit more "laid back" compared to Sing The Word Hope, more like Last Time This Year or Our History Will
Be What We Make It than Co-Conspirators, but I like what I hear so far.

I mean, I've been bouncing back and forth, but it's not as raw and such. They've kind of polished their sound, almost too much actually. It's beautiful and all, but it's not the band I loved on Sing the Word Hope. Still, given time, I could see this surpassing it, it's so gorgeous.


I hope you like it Aids.

this is compositionally better and better produced than sing the world hope. as you said it just doesn't have the same energy

the 10th track here is a problem IMO, the heavy riffs don't really fit in with the sound of the rest of the album

I'm definitely in the minority with this opinion: but this is my favorite of theirs yet. Heard it a few times through and have the desire for many more... I'd love to be able to review this if I have time this week

I wouldn't say you're in the minority just yet. I predict this being the favorite once it hits. Personally, it's probably mine, but its clearly missing something, which makes it seem less special and more generic. Still, it's a bombass album.

there's definitely more to listen to here from a harmonic and compositional perspective. STWH ruled but at times wasn't fleshed out enough

I liked the aggressiveness of STWH, the angst-filled political rants mainly, I thought they were really well done. That being said, I'm glad they moved from that approach a little bit.

This album just makes me so fucking happy I could cry, parts of it are just gorgeous. Seriously, what is with this band and their ability to make me weep like a fucking baby?

I have listened to it only once yet but I also think by now it kinda lacks energy. But I'm gonna give a few more spins.

I'd say that's fortunate, not unfortunate. If their name wasn't the worst thing about them I'd probably hate their music.

They've opted for a more synthetic sound overall. It still works fine, I was just kinda hoping for at least a couple of straight up aggressive songs. It doesn't matter too much since they nailed a lot of passages on here.

Still, this has been the only post-rock release this year that has interested me. Go check out the video for Critical Distance if you haven't. It's pretty cool.

I think I may like White Fields just a tiny bit more, but I'd recommend Helioscope. It's one of the more unique releases of 2011.
