LIGHTS AT SEA: Palace Walls: CD

May 03, 2011

This isn't bad. I'm actually listening to it right now as I write because it's not distracting. It's that epic kind of instrumental post-rock with lots of high guitar tones and crescendos. I really don't understand the post-rock thing; you simply can't build on the sound. It always sounds like weaker versions of classic albums by bands like Godspeed You! Black Emperor or Explosions In The Sky. It's okay, but irrelevant. If “not distracting” is the best thing a hack record reviewer can say about your album while it plays in the background, then something is sadly lacking.
