The most epic of instrumental rockers turn to the most epic of themes on this stunning piece of work, which sees them in simultaneously heavy, succinct, and grandiose form.
It also signals a reunion with producer Steve Albini – the engineer capturing the Tokyo players at their most masterful. The stirring string arrangements from the band’s heyday make a welcome return in communicating the enormity of their ambition and thus more nuanced moments as the album continues. whether you hang on the every reverbed note of these guys, or need a reason to believe in post-rock again, this is essential. “…moments of genuine beauty, fear and grandness which demands you to fall into hell just as dante’s devil demanded him to” 8/10 – Drowned In Sound
