3.0 goodAdam Turner-Heffer | June 14th 07

Some fantastic songs to be found here, particularly on the title track, as Pelican make notes of their whole career so far, and use it to their advantage with improved song writing, guitar interplay and condensing.
Unfortunately though, this is also a very cluttered album which possesses none of the atmosphere or emotion attached to the previous efforts and just doesn't feel like a complete work.
A real shame after 'The Fire in throats' showed us not only how you can make new approaches to instrumental music by being loud and layered, but also revolutionising it into a wonderfully emotional piece.

There's no emotion behind it, and thus it is empty. There's no depth behind it, and thus it is boring. There's no Fire In Our Throats, and thus it is a big disappointment.

This album could be better but it's like the drummer is always playing just a tad to slow... kinda a bummer cause i love this band.

2.0 poorDakota West Foss | April 23rd 08

What's the next logical step that you take after you create an incredibly well received epic instrumental album? Well if you're Pelican then you make a completely useless, pointless, more accessible piece of garbage that contains absolutely nothing that made your band respectable. There are moments where it is decent, but is quickly faded out by just plain bad, bland, and generic songwriting.
