Prog Reviewer
4 stars The first album of this young British band brought perhaps the most original sounding of the year, although quite hard to digest at certain point. In sum, it turned out to be an interesting blend of post-rock with alternative, electronic and psychadelia, with certain original details particularly at the voice, as if it was a parody to Looney Tunes. Although the experimentation, it relies on influences from Van der Graaf Generator to Krautrock, almost catapulting progressive rock to the indie scene. Indeed, the album flows like it was built like a joke which turned out into something serious. The hit Atlas is probably the music of the year.
