7/10 Richard 4th April 2019

It seems rather odd that math-rock is still a thing in 2019. There are many moments on this LP when I am taken straight back to the late nineties/early noughties. The drum break and single note guitar riff that breaks in after a rather anthemic opening to the first track 'Sultans Of Ping' (eh?) is classic math-rock, and this carries the track to it's typically abrupt closing, as more guitars swirl and build. It's pretty damn good, and very tight as all good math-rock needs to be. The LP proceeds from there as expected with the usual quiet and loud passages, and even ends with a lovely near 3 minute guitar & vocal tune to gently close proceedings.

The main problem with the LP is that there is nothing particularly new or ground breaking here. It sounds like Billy Mahonie quite a bit (no bad thing) but I'm not desperate to play it again once it's done. A fine 45 minutes if you need more of that sort of thing in your life, and it's certainly not a bad record. Good rather, but not great.
