Catchy Vocal Hooks and Ubiquitous Finger Numbing Riffs: The Album
EDIT: Touchstone is my jam

4.5 superbGreyShadow | April 23rd 14

This is an album I keep coming back to this year and the more I do that, the more certain I am that this will be my album of the year. Every song is magnificent for one thing, it all flows seamlessly, and I think their sound is utter perfection. Complex yet easy to appreciate. rI can almost certainly say that conceptually, this is a band I've always dreamed of hearing and I don't think I'll ever get enough of itrBest Tracks: Touchstone, Chronos, Input., and the king of them all The Pharmacist

I love this album so much. This will most likely remain my AOTY.

3.0 goodhahGAY | May 12th 14

This album is growing on me, but the thing that annoys me is they label themselves as "math rock" but don't seem to know what that means. The drummer just does alot of weird fills and they bpm changes hardly ever.

3.5 greatMicah-Nahum Ferguson. | January 29th 14

This band has matured a lot since their earlier material. This album is awesome, but still shows that the band may have issues on achieving balance between their progressive elements and full musical cohesion. This is so close to excellent. A great surprise.

4.0 excellentNomos | January 27th 14

While more technical than their last album, many songs begin to run together in the second
half, and a lot of melody is lost in the name of guitar noodling and insane drumming. It's
still great, but don't expect LA,L pt II. For a better experience, listen with
speakers/headphones that can punch out the bass, because the rhythm section here is
delicious.

4.5 superbJacob R. STAFF | January 24th 14

I can't stop listening to "In Aeternum." I just can't do it. It's easily the most life-affirming thing these guys have ever done. (And you'll hear about my take on the rest of the album when I get around to it.)

0.0 Kyle Pierce | January 24th 14

With the stellar fretwork you'd expect, funky, unpredictable drum beats, and even better vocals than the last time around, Icarus the Owl kicks some ass.
