    Doesn't quite live up to the promise of the earlier EP but the album still delivers melancholia by the hateful. Look no further than the epic Spencer Perceval track.

  1. Preferring patience and restraint over explosive blasts of atmospheric wailing, iLiKETRAiNS slowly build up these songs to climax, careful not to move to quickly to alter the mood that this entire collection expels.

    Any goth undertow is easily outweighed by post-rock grandeur. [Nov 2004, p.95]
  3. The debut album from the Leeds sonic evangelists features tracks about an assassinated prime minister, the Salem witch trials and an East German border guard who committed suicide through guilt after escaping to the West....These subjects are then twinned with a sound rich in solemn and ultimately cacophonous guitar.
