To the small minded individuals who dare rate this music as less than four stars, I pity your cold, angry world. This is an incredibly emotional experience, and while Aereogramme have listened to the likes of King Crimson, Tool, Radiohead, etc, they are certainly different and in many ways superior to all of those bands... I love those three bands, too...
This cd has some of the heaviest moments I've ever heard, as well as some of the most beautiful string arrangements. The singer's high tenor is powerful but fragile, and the overall production is detailed.
I was blown away upon first listen... You really owe it to yourself to check these Scots out.

Their last album, while not great, was still better than this one. This album reminds me or Radiohead, grandiose and dull. There is rarely any engaging melody or any sense of songwriting in the way sounds are layered together.
