Wow... this is really good.

The harmonizing at the end of the first song is superb.

well it's good but I think it's more cheesy than catchy

The other ones grow on you, but the first two were my favorites for a long time (they've been up for about a month)

They may not be prolific, but Scottish rockers The Darien Venture continue to improve on their 3rd release 'A Kite, A Key and A Storm'. Delivering more tempo-switching math-rock, the angular dual guitar work is once more a strength on this 7 track, 26 minute release. Pleasingly, the quartet strike a balance between their raw past work & a new streamlined approach which does away with filler. The biggest upgrade comes with the vocals, as all 4 members provide surprisingly memorable harmonies & backing chants on an album which deserves to see The Darien Venture receive more exposure. Recommended Tracks: Ho! Criminal Face, 1.21 Gigawatts, Bones & Catapult.
