This is one of the best works in Prog World in the last 25 years. Creepy but sweet guitars and even there's no voice along the whole album,it's instrumental sound is magic. A must for every prog fan.

This is truly outstanding progressive rock. All instrumental but with loads of mood and dynamics. Guitars are superb. If you are a fan of Porcupine Tree, Abigail's Ghost, Riverside, Opeth and the like it is to be wholly recommended.

Absolutely amazing! 30 Sep 2009
By T. A. Wauldron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not one flaw. Each and every track grabs you and takes you in, rolling through highs and lows. Each track is allowed to develop, and never rushed. This isn't `chamber music prog'. The influences are more in the taste of Riverside, a touch of Agalloch, and perhaps O.S.I. (first cd). I hate to say "they sound like..." because this band has a unique sound that grabbed me from the first track, first 10 seconds. At a tad over 55 minutes, I was totally bummed there wasn't more. I just wasn't ready for it to end.

I can't do this justice by breaking each track down. They are all amazing. Go to their MySpace site, and give them a listen.

Now, to get the REST of their stuff!

Outstanding new band from Germany. A solid 4 stars 6 May 2011
By Russell Sullins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow this is some good stuff here..Long Distance Calling is a new 5 piece band from Germany.Talented guys with some good ideas.Mostly instrumental experimental prog metal fusion without the growling screaming and shredding.Some really good music,heavy,spacey fusiony get down power prog.Take Porcupine Tree,mix in some Riverside/Lunatic soul and a tiny dash of fusion and you get this great music.Avoid The Light is very worthy album and is highly recommended.As is their other couple of albums including Long distance Calling 2011 2 disc spec. edition with Live at The Roadburn 2010 included.4 solid stars.

Do not avoid them 8 Nov 2009
By Anemora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nuevo esfuerzo de Long Distance Calling y resulta ser uno de los discos mas interesantes de post-rock del 2009.
Avoid the Light no es un gran avance en la musica de Long Distance Calling, más bien la banda nos vuelve a recetar la misma formula introducida en su disco debut satellite bay del 2007, de hecho, ambos discos se pueden escuchar como uno solo y no hay mucha variacion, pero no por eso el disco es malo, pues al igual que el satellite bay, es un disco muy bueno, lleno de texturas, riffs limpios pero con fuerza, que hace que la musica suba por momentos y por otros baje y sea mas melancolico y hasta experimental, como una montaña rusa de emociones, ejecutados de gran forma.
Pero no es que tampoco LDC haga una copia de su disco debut, hay elementos nuevos, como la incorporacion de Jonas Renkse como invitado en las voces para "The Nearing Grave", pieza que perfectamente podria atraer a muchos seguidores de musica comercial,pues la vos de Renkse se adapta muy bien a la musica de LDC, pero el unico hecho que no lo hace comercial (por dicha) es su duracion, sobrepasa los siete minutos y de hecho como es caracteristico en el post-rock las piezas que componen este disco son mas extensas que las de su album debut, pues ninguna baja de los 7 minutos y dos de las 6 canciones del disco sobrepasan los 10 minutos.
Con algunos cambios que se dispusieran hacer, esta banda podria facilmente encontrar mas espacio y difusion en radios a nivel mundial, pues su musica es llamativa, bien ejecutada y altamente digerible, sin ser una banda extraordinaria pero con mucho potencial, sobre todo si le incorporan voces, LDC podria atraer a mas seguidores y ser todo un fenomeno mediatico, por mientras siguen "caminando" sobre terreno solido y sentando buenas bases para quizas en un futuro "despegar", hecho que se daria tan pronto su musica llegue a USA.

Recomendado para seguidores de Tool, Isis, Daturah, Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, Agalloh
