"Nobody builds a wall of noise like Oceansize, and the scope here is breathtaking from quiet, drawn out beauty, to jazz, to sheer POWER! The drummer is the best around today. They're English too..."

"Heavy as f*ck yet euphoric, pleasant and uplifting, jazzy but punky, pretentious yet credible, this album is guaranteed to sound unlike anything you've ever heard. The soaring vocals are beautiful."

"Another Dredg album and a very different one. Very unique, heavy and beautiful, this album contains the finest and most epic soundscapes you will ever hear and the atmosphere will just stagger you."

"Even when, druring One out of nOne, this band reaches its heaviest, this is music that goes down so smooth. Paper Champion (Massive Attack meets Tool) is like a musical orgasm."

"How The Verve would sound if they reformed and went one louder! Confident, strident, epic soundscapes with a rhythm section that will shake your house to the ground. Awesome."

"The most pleasant, upifting guitar / drum music I've ever heard. No vocals, no anger, just beauty that will make your spirit soar. Sounds like the soundtrack to a better life than mine!"

"The only downside is that the speed and complexity can get a bit overwhelming. Still a stunning salsa-rock-jazz album in the Pink Floyd / Yes vein. More ideas in one song than most bands ever have."

"Manc band Oceansize are like a hybrid of Mogwai, Massive Attack, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and the Cardiacs, and this album was the best of 2005. Warning: like all of theirs, it takes a few listens!"

"You never know where Biffy are going to take you next, and this album (great cover!) is a twisting journey full of surprises, comforts and challenges."

"Influential and ahead of its time. So of course it's totally unknown. One of the older albums here but one which has influenced any modern band worth anything. Hypnotic, driving rhythms abound."

"The most simple album here, Kerbdog were a straight-up Irish rock band. Still sounds great, kinda Nirvana, kinda Therapy? (but not) Kerbdog were killed by apathy but still inspired the below."

"Just a great, great band, and British again. Loads of energy, great tunes, brilliant vocals, loads of emotion. Just great, all round, balls-out rock."

"Indulgent, brilliant, and epic. Not quite as good as the debut, and occasionally let down by the same indulgence that makes it so masterful."

"Martin Grech may rule the world one day. What a voice. At one point sounds like Jeff Buckley at the world's scariest funfair. Insanely dark and emotive."

"No idea how to even describe this, everything is just so great. The rhythm section is awesome, the vocals powerful, the twin guitar work exhilarating. Were originally called Mindf*ck if that helps."

"I often wonder how some bands manage to be so heavy yet so deeply melodic at the same time - The Postman Syndrome make beautiful, beautiful, music. With manga references and shouting."

"Took me ages to get into this - more subtle and mature than their debut, but no less awesome. The genius of the drums from Into The Space Age is obvious and the bass in Every Combat is just silly!"
