4.0 out of 5 stars An organic jaunt through a post-rock landscape 12 Sep 2010
By Silver
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album on a whim, expecting some serious instrumental post-rock in the vein of the usual suspects - not that it'd be such a terrible thing, of course, it's just nice to see something different crop up. However, I was pleasantly surprised by what was a very different take on the usual 'quite to loud' dynamic, creating something that was similar to other artists, yet somehow very distinctive. In fact, I wouldn't even describe Silver Ray as a primarily post-rock outfit. I'm surprised there's no review yet - I'll do my best to help out!

It's always difficult to describe this sort of sound, but Silver Ray make it a little easier by incorporating plenty of nice piano lines that border on outright lounge or jazz melodies at times, meshing well with very restrained and appropriate guitar lines. Restraint does seem to be the name of the game throughout the album, and despite that it really does feel as though the band have managed to jam their way to six excellent tracks, building up from basic ideas into fully fledged epics, all live in the studio. The first two lengthy tracks in particular demonstrate this very well, somehow transforming a sound that would be more at home in a laid-back jazz bar into something that occupies ten minutes of space very well, despite never straying into the trap of overstaying their welcome. They don't sound cinemtic or orchestral in arrangement like Godspeed!, being a little too minimalist for that - the closest that I can get is applying a delicate, tasteful jazz touch to the post-rock stylings of a band like Mogwai at their softest.
