Carsten Pieper Ah, why didn't I buy this earlier? Has been on my wishlist since it's release and Bad Elephant Music's sampler and ongoing sales campaign luckily triggered the buy.

Tags given are post-progressive and post-rock, but the music feels much lighter than I usually associate with those tags. Quite song-oriented, indeed. Great music, great vocals. Favorite track: Flight Of The Uberloon.

Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) I've waited a long time for this album! And it was worth it. I just love the electronica works of Matt Baber. The same is true for the more song-oriented music of the "Joff Winks Band". And of course I'm a fan of the "Antique Seeking Nuns", where they joined forces, before transforming into "Sanguine Hum". This album is well beyond what commonly is subsumed as prog rock, so I guess the tag "post-progressive" is exactly appropriate here. This timeless album is a great life companion, every now and the to be played again whenever you're in need of listening to something really special. Favorite track: The View Part 2.
