  • Summary: This is the Ohio band's fourth album of jazzy prog-rock.

  1. Positive: 7 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. Never has Aloha sounded so tight, so completely in control of its sound, so assured of that sound.
  2. Like a computer geek with a romantic streak, Ohio's Aloha straddle the line between trad songcraft and proggy virtuosity.
  3. Each moment is devoted to the continuing shifts in dynamics and song, and Aloha sounds sharper than ever before.
  4. While it starts a bit slowly, Aloha’s fourth proper album is filled with signature pieces that are stunningly relentless.
  5. While Some Echoes starts out as a good album, by the end it reveals itself as the best thing they've ever done.
  6. They... seem to be getting better at distilling their myriad of influences into dreamy, quietly elusive four-minute pop songs. [Jun 2006, p.178]
  7. Aloha sound more like Genesis than ever.

    A great album, full of excellent songs. "Come Home" is one of the best songs this year. I love the marimba.

    Better than the last album. Not as improvisational as older Aloha, and I think I like that. Much more attention to detail. Absolutely Better than the last album.
