5.0 classicGaffaz11 | October 25th 10

Once you listen to this album more than a few times, you realise the intensity and significance it could possibly have on your music taste. This album is both accessible and easy to listen to, but so difficult to capture. Laura have mastered the idea of having a grabbing opening song, with 'Jericho'. This song is a two minute, increasingly intense piece that could only be rivaled by a somewhat similar song that is 'Moya' by GY!BE, and if you can rival GY!BE, you know you're doing something right in the post-rock world.

5.0 classicmaromam | March 28th 10

unfairly underated album by a splendid underated band with a very mature sound, that once you get used to, its hard to let go.
mapping your dreams as a whole is a mixture of simplicity combined with a very calculated sound, and climaxes that when you expect them, the moment they come gives you shivers down your spine, unlike a lot of post rock bands i know.

4.5 superbnatey | February 19th 08

This whole album has an ethereal feel to it, possibly due to Laura's employment of synthesizers, but its effect on the listener is hardly contrived. "Jericho" is a little bland, but as soon as you get to "Levodopa" the album starts to gain momentum. There is a very simple quality to Mapping Your Dreams, but that doesn't diminish the climaxes or the prettiness of certain melodies or orchestrations on it. It's a fairly unique album that most post-rock lovers should enjoy.
