This is melodic, anthemic postrock. Along with the usual distorted guitars and drums, a dominant role is given to acoustic piano in these pieces. The careful attention paid to the levels at which the different instruments are mixed is the best thing about this music; it's simply possible to _hear_ so much in it! This release is also available in FLAC format from the band's website; get it from there if you want the highest quality. The only reason I give it a 9 instead of a 10 is because every song falls into the same tempo range and is certainly in 4/4 -- that is, every piece is an "anthem". But the fix for that is simply to mix these brilliant tunes up with other sorts of music in your playlists.
