    On Deep Politics, Grails sound more like themselves than ever, while taking their music to an entirely new level.

    Big ideas trade blows with mere doodles, but the resultant concoction is easily the band's most rewarding work yet.

    Deep Politics, their latest, is among their richest, most expansive offerings to date.

    The only times Deep Politics doesn't work is when it goes for that sun-scorched, ex-cokehead AOR sheen. Perhaps when you cast your nets this wide, a little brim is inevitable.

    Straddling the line between wooshy Sega Genesis menu music and cinematic Pink Floyd maelstrom, Deep Politics is creepy and grand, and at its core is a sonic feast.

    The music achieves a throbbing equilibrium halfway through each track, which makes it easy to zone out. So maybe this is just great zone-out music.
