Customer Review

on 5 May 2013
A real departure from the style of their previous albums which I was not really sure about to start with. However with repeated plays it has grown on me considerably. There are definitely 70's and 80's influences at play and the Pink Floyd one I have heard mentioned is quite accurate. However to take the record on its own merits without the aforementioned reference points I feel the mix of several different musical styles reaps dividends. The opening track is one that I find difficult to get out of my head and most of the others have a way of leaving you wanting more. The music has a particular comforting feel to it with the lead singers relaxed, languid but assured voice helping to create a mellow 'blissed out' atmosphere. Synths are fairly prominent throughout. This is a lengthy recording over 2 discs and the only slight criticism is the inordinate length of the final track which lasts for some 17 - 18 mins but still has its merits. Particular favourites (other than Black Mould which I have previously referred to) at the moment are Inside me dead and Morning Riff but overall another enjoyable offering from a fine NZ band. Also a good live act if you get the chance to see them on their current tour.
