Lovely. If you don't want lovely, look elsewhere,
This review is from: The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place (Audio CD)
This is beautiful music, but post-rockers -- particularly those who prefer the more raucous moments of GYBE, Mogwai etc. -- may initially feel somewhat underwhelmed. This is something altogether prettier, with chiming, brittle guitar lines forming the (fragile) backbone of every track. If Coldplay went prog and Chris Martin stopped singing it might sound like this -- and that's meant to be a compliment, by the way.
There are crescendos, of course; there is martial drumming. There are long, meandering tracks. This is definitely post-rock. But it's an altogether more ethereal take on the genre, wistful rather than angst-ridden.
