4.5 superbfsharptrit0ne | February 10th 12

when you fall the earth creates a nest where you can safely rest your head when you call
the birds will cease to sing so your voice can be heard instead when you cry the clouds
part from the sun and flowers blossom from the trees when you're cold fire burns the earth
and everyone gets burned like me

4.5 superbirv | February 18th 12

A fine return to form for The Flashbulb, after 'Love As A Dark Hallway' which for me was a slight disappointment with its more jazzy elements. This release has much more in common with STAVL and Arboreal, although arguably on a more upbeat tip. The melancholia I associate with STAVL is replaced with an as-beautiful floaty cosmic feel in many of the tracks.

From the opening (a homage to the first track on STAVL it seems to me) I knew it was going in the direction I wanted. No filler, and a joy to listen to even for the production alone. Beautiful music, beautifully put together - an album to lie back and let wash over you.

So yeah - I love it. I think if STAVL gets a 5 from me, this has to be a 4.5, purely because of the feelings I attach to the former. Pure class though.
