4.0 excellentLunaticSoul | January 28th 13

Let me say this: A Long Time Listening is an amazing album, with a lot of influences, a lot
of innovation and really a fresh air for modern rock. There is just something that holds me
from giving a "superb" rating (which, trust me, would be deserved): the record it's too long
and therefore dispersive. There was enough material for an EP and a LP. But that's what
happens nowadays, the debut has always an enormous amount of songs because it usually
comprises all the precedent efforts of a band. Aside from this Support these guys, as they
are great guys and they have a unique style, both on record and live.. ;)

Although this band has potential, I truly which the production on their wasn't always so needlessly sterile and sanitized.

Great album but way too long. it should have finished with "Almost a whisper" fading out.

4.5 superbDaveyBoy EMERITUS | November 2nd 15

Following a superb taster EP, Icelandic prog-rockers Agent Fresco excel again on debut LP 'A Long Time Listening'. The quartet explore even more forms of rock here, ending up sounding like a hybrid of Dredg, Mew, Muse & The Mars Volta. Creative, complex & innovative, the twists & turns are intricately layered & meticulously detailed. Each band member shines throughout, but special mention must be made of Arnor Dan Arnarson's mesmerizing voice. It's overlong at 66 minutes, but the amazing thing is how genuinely melodic & accessible this behemoth of a record is. Recommended Tracks: Eyes of a Cloud Catcher, A Long Time Listening, Paused, Above These City Lights & Anemoi.
