I'd say, easily the best rock album of 2011, in my opinion and most likely the best band you've never heard of. I've seen them twice and wasn't disappointed. I love this band and I hope they continue to succeed!
This barrage of relentless noise and pummeling rhythms, when coupled with Garden Window's amorphous arrangements, can make the album claustrophobic, monotonous, and overwhelming. But the record's redeemed by its range.
Garden Window's individual songs could stand to find better cohesion, but the band's quest for answers packs a consistent thematic punch, and certain musical moments that surface as a result of their boiling frustration are just spellbinding.
