As always, well crafted songs mingle with spacey, psychedelic instrumental breakouts. The album offers a variety of atmospheres and moods. It is underpinned by brilliant musicianship and punctuated with tentative weirdness and spacey moments.
There's always a provocative message or something to preach about with CoH and this album as always, doesn't fall short on that front as they take on the general malaise of society with messages to stir the listeners worldview.
Overall an engaging and captivating listen.
Here's the press release from the band themselves...
