    Dissolver is a serviceable pop-rock record that would have benefited from being subject to more of the band’s experimental tendencies, a missed opportunity for the trio to release a cutting-edge yet accessible set of music.

They step away from the dense and edgy songwriting, unusual song structures, and gritty production to make a pretty straight forward rock album. Unlike with those previous bands I mentioned, I'm new to Iran, so I'm not positioned to be dissapointed. Even if I was, I know how to recognize a solid rock album when I hear one. Very little filler, just one impressive song after another. I'm sure they'll return to their art house style soon enough, but for now, this is a pretty awesome album. Full Review »
