    A great album. Not perfect, but the range & depth of it exceed anything else I've heard in a long time.

    a stunning album. sweeping emotional outbursts only bettered by the outrageously glorious music.

  1. It's an obvious comparison given the company they keep, but, this time around, Aereogramme really are Mogwai and The Delgados on the same record.
  2. The building of momentum from beautiful or ominous minimalism into cathartic, sweeping heaviness is remarkable.
  3. Revelatory, if somehow pompous.
