4.5 superbNeutralThunder12 | July 6th 10

On this record, which is outrageously mesmerizing, Maybeshewill blend hard rock with a highly technical post-rock and electronica, and holy fuck does it work. I was absolutely speechless by the end of the album. I think I actually used the phrase "Holy shit" about six times during my first listen. What's so captivating about this record is how it combines slick and gorgeous piano sections, electronic samples and luscious atmospherics with it's heavier, much more raw, rockingsections. The hard rock sections are intense and always incorporate some type of impressive guitar work, whether it be a tapping section, or a layered dual harmony. I love the play between the badass heavy sections and the atmospheric, dense sections; sometimes they are clearly separated from each other by interludes, sometimes used together to form a giant boulder of epicness, sometimes they climax together at certain points, and then decompress in separate sections. Obviously, The combination of raw hard rock and brilliantly produced electronic/ambient sections is mind-blowing, and the perfectly placed 'talking vocal' sections are chilling and magnificent; the lyrical content revolves the bands strong political views and ideas; actually, all of the words you hear on the album are simply samples from other mediums. And they use samples brilliantly, not only to make a point, but to assist the music itself. Love it. Honestly though, its more of like a 4 maybe 4.5, but this album really got me to become interested in post-rock and all instrumental music. It was a gateway for me.

After 3 more listens, this album is spectacular. The samples used in a few songs are perfect. The haunting guitar/piano combos they do are just.... guh. Gorgeous.

Corny, bland, uninteresting post-rock. More proof that the genre is becoming increasingly homogenized.

This album leaves me speechless.

4.0 excellentTravis Montgomery | July 27th 12

Definitely a much more complete and finished product than Not for Want of Trying. This is definitely a lot louder and more aggressive; and it feels as if they've lost a lot of the "post-rock" sound that was so prominent in the last album. However, with losing that they've found their own unique sound that sets them apart and makes this album so much more enjoyable. 3.9/5
