7/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017
'Down to earth' is a good way to describe their performance on the album overall. Their previous effort, The Fire In Our Throats, was a little pretentious, and they tried to get away with putting too little music in too much time. On City Of Echoes, Pelican knew exactly what they wanted to do, and they recorded as an incredibly tight unit once more. There's no messing around, as is evident in the lengths of the songs, with the average song length being 5 minutes, far more concentrated than the 10 minute pseudo-epics of their last album. Their abandonment of riffs on that record was disappointing, but they have salvaged them once more, and they're all of Australasia standard. They've now made the change in sound and it works. I won't compare City Of Echoes to Australasia because they didn't make it to be compared to that album, however they have incorporated what was good about that album and put together a great experience.
