0.0 Sam Feldman's Rating | September 1st 10

Album is an absolute mess, even for Tera Melos' math-rock standards. There is some amazing (and i mean amazing) clarity in the last few minutes of "Trident Tail", but other than that the album is confused with no real sense of direction or purpose.

I'm listening to "Frozen Zoo", double-handed tapping my guitar, watching the Simpsons, eating popcorn and beating off to pictures of Nick Reinhart's moustache in euphoric delight over the release of Patagonian Rats.

3.0 goodEno | September 7th 10

20 5's and the album hasn't even been officially released? To quote MJ ...."Self deception is possible"......nah but really it's like ratings have no sacredness these days.

Hi! We're Tera Melos and we like noodles! So many fucking noodles.

5.0 classicLights09 | August 28th 10

Starts off so smooth and hits you with everything it's got throughout, manipulating your emotions and giving you the best chills. Finally, the ending track "Manar the magic" (Vinyl version), which you will remember from those teaser videos, will put you in the state of mind which can only be explained by the front cover of the album. Happy.

4.0 excellentFernando Obregon Espinosa | September 1st 10

This album flows so good I could barely notice it the first time I heard it. Production might be a problem, for it could have been much more focused in certain aspects, nonetheless, I'm loving it. As far as AOTY goes, I doubt this could top Diamond Eyes on my list.

5.0 classicGage Horton | August 28th 10

Album is too good for words. I never thought vocals could work well with Tera Melos, but
dear science I was very wrong. Makes me want to party with Gina.

This is the album kids in will download 10 years from now, bringing Tera Melos out of retirement to play sold out shows and festivals.

5.0 classicIllmatiicc | August 26th 10

Just got this - wasn't expecting much but this album just flows soo well after the second listen. The incoporated jazz is what defines this album from the others. You'll be on the fifth or sixth so quickly its insane. Fun.

If there was a soundtrack to falling into a pit of zombie alligators while doing the Can-Can and shotgunning a beer, this would be that album.

An album that flows together so goodly-like, I can't write words knowledgeable words here.

Pre- release 5. I don't doubt that it will be confirmed.rEdit: CONFIRMED- ALBUM OF THE FUCKING YEAR.rNick Reinhart starred in and did the soundtrack for the movie "Snakeville". You will say "wut" when you watch this.rhttp://vimeo.com/9476147

4.0 excellentWar On Drugs: Suck My Cock | September 7th 10

Third-wave ska melodies married with math rock ethos. Fairly brilliant, if a little repetitive.

4.0 excellentJeremy Price | August 31st 10

It's been a long time since I've been this vexed by an album. Simultaneously catchy and completely inaccessible, Patagonian Rats is a conundrum set to music, a massive contradiction that eventually folds in upon itself and begins self-sustaining and breeding like its titular rats. Oh, and it's also really good... I think. Maybe.

Terrific song-writing, terrific atmosphere, terrific album. Tera Melos have reached a new peak.

I don't like how people are calling this album "fun" because it is too good for that.

Album of the year indeed. fluid fun math endeavors gliding into transparent jazzy interludes. Enjoyable lyrical content. Tera Melos reigns supreme.

4.5 superbMyles O'Donnell | August 25th 10

i feel like tera melos might be the most important band for progressive music out there today with this album, i love it. haven't quiet absorbed it enough yet to give it a 5, but it probably will be.ri also noted it has a lot of the same elements for the structure of the album as a whole that frances the mute has, which i dig.

4.5 superbMikeCueto | August 24th 10

I love the vocals throughout the album, and I think there's a slight nod to either melody four or five somewehere. My favorite album since Drugs.

0.0 Eli EMERITUS | September 6th 10

Tera Melos explore their more alt/indie side, while stripping away almost everything that made them so interesting on their debut. Yet another 2010 disappointment.
