3.5 greatAlabaster Jones | June 7th 16

In the year 2016, post-rock as a standalone genre is pretty hard to work with if you want to make a great album solely within its confines. That didn't stop Yndi Halda, though, and it doesn't stop If These Trees Could Talk either, albeit to a quality lesser in scale. The Bones Of A Dying World is rife with a chilly, airy atmosphere that the clean sounds of the guitars and drums sound totally at home inside. The compositions themselves are pretty standard, but the songs don't follow the same structure over and over again throughout, which adds spice to the record. Opener "Solstice" sets the tone wonderfully with its catchy rhythms and even catchier melodies striking open the gates for soaring guitars and explosive drums. While not very original, the rest of the record is performed with precision and tact, and acts well as active listening music and as background music to boot. Also, Rubber City all damn day.

A very well crafted album with zero originality. The production is very good. Arrangements are creative (bass could be more interesting). "Solstice" is a very strong opener. It's just that feeling of 'I've heard that before'...

With 3 LP's under their belt, If These Trees Could Talk have proven they are truly
masters of
their craft.. unfortunately their craft just doesn't happen to be very original.
Nevertheless this
release - which soundwise is essentially a continuation of their previous offering -
provides 55
minutes of lush, almost ethereal soundscapes and soaring crescendos. Bolstered by a clear
and
dynamic production, the album is equally as effective
background music as it is an actively engaging slab of post-rock. Its a 4 from me folks
