Strangely, I normally would have hated those vocals, but they work well in combination with the heavenly indie music, instrumentally reminiscent of math rock a little.

Not as solid as previous albums, but still some good stuff to be found here. The sax in "Pattern Doubt" comes off a bit kitschy and sounds like lounge music. Some of the percussion just seems to be a bit too freeform as well. I feel like they're most successful when sounding more like what they've done before, and that's not because I want them to just repeat themselves, but for me that's what works best on this album (and that's not to say they're repeating themselves, but rather they sound best when they sound like themselves). And as usual John Rossiter's voice is incredible, though the effect he uses in the beginning of the first song does not sound good.

Where the hell did this come from? This album is actually spectacular. I came into this not expecting anything, but I came away with an album I'll remember as a standout in a somewhat disappointing year for music so far. Amazing job, my dudes.

The seven-piece art rock band have released their fifth album and it is the best one they have done thus far. Every new album they continue to create and distinguish themselves as the top dogs in the art rock and indie rock scene. They have created such a diverse sound that not many (if not most) can do (expect Radiohead). From the opening lines of this album you know your in for a real treat. But as you continue hearing the blissful and free-jazz inspired guitar riffs, you know your in for a real enlightening experience. The only downfall of this record is that the last two songs don?t have the same bite that the rest of the album does. They are both 9-ish minute long songs that take heavy influence from Talk Talk and they don?t always nail the landing on the length of it. There are many solid ideas on this record and anyone looking for a magnificent record this is the place to look.

Free-form freakouts for the indie-inclined. Not all of the group's detours arrive at meaningful destinations, but album closer "Magicians" is a ten-minute musical journey you won't want to miss.
