Upon ripping this album to my mp3 player, iTunes atomatically identified this music as ‘punk’. If that’s true, then my most recent fart was ‘symphonic’. Nope, this album, the Dalian group’s third is text-book post-rock as practiced by the likes of Godspeed You Black Emperor, Sigur Ros and, most especially, Mogwai. Almost too text-book, in fact – the eleventh track sounded so much like the latter band’s ‘hunted like a freak’ that I had to double check to make sure I was listening to the right band. Unhurried intros lead inevitably to crashing, multi-layered guitar crescendos. This vocal-less album is for folks who like their music slow and loud, which is to say anyone with decent taste.
