 I disagree with this review almost entirely. I've been listening to this album for months, and it's easily the best thing I've heard all year. The reviewer hardly touches on the very heavy post-rock element to the record. Nearly every song is made up of the tension-release aesthetic that most post-rock adheres to, and they usually hit some sort of big crescendo as well. The climax on "Sunlit Ascending" is but one of many simply amazing moments on this album. The second song doesn't really work for me, but other than that the whole thing is simply fantastic.
