WHAT! An album from the guys from Birmingham, and what a way to debut what could be a brilliant career if they can keep this kind of skill up. It's Sigur Ros style Post Rock with Pink Floyd and any other excellent Prog Rock band you can think of. The guitars are sweet and the work is complex and well thought out. No random over the top soloing from anyone, and the story mixes well to take you on a journey far far away.
This could easily be a 5, simply one of the best progressive albums I've heard in a long, long time. The style seems like a blend of progressive rock and post rock at times and boy does it deliver! This album has everythingnyou would want from a progressive album - chilled and mystifying songs that take you on a journey, unique compositions, a veried selection of songs and brilliant musianship that is interesting throughout. And no 'wanking' whatsoever in sight. These guys could be huge with some more publicity and a few more albums.
Highly reccommended to prog or post rock fans.
