8/10 according to Phil (Norman Records staff) on Wed 14 Mar, 2012
Now I thought these guys were called Canopy just cos who calls a band Silent Whale Becomes A Dream? That's mental. Well apparently not as these guys are called Silent Whale Becomes A Dream. Hey you live and learn... This is apparently a reissue of their 1st release though I can find cack all about 'em on the internet. So I'm just gonna have to bloody listen to the thing! This is epic post rock. It's as epic as post rock can get.... 4 tracks of neo classical infused post rock by numbers for fans of Explosions In The sky, Godspeed and the ilk. Seriously it's as epic as those explosions guys.... It's massive, rousing and pompous You know those really emotional scenes in films where the plot has built up for a while and there's a scene where something big happens near the end.... this is the music to it. Nice classical(y) bits in it though! And if you're after epic heart tuggy post rock then this may become your new friend.

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
