    As with all instrumental rock, Forgetting The Present is hugely evocative and powerful.

    Forgetting The Present is the latest and most perfect union of Remember Remember’s distinctive blend of styles. Expect that record to stand for as long as it takes for their next album to appear.

    Texturally, Forgetting The Present is gorgeous, a deep field of beautiful orchestration to explore.

    More robust moments provide the necessary shift but, with all its delicate finesse, Forgetting The Present largely prefers to take its oblivion lying down. [Aug 2014, p.86]

    There may come a time where repeated fine-tuning becomes progressively more difficult, but in the meantime Remember Remember have released an album that consolidates their position and shows off their abilities in impressive style.

    Remember Remember are more about awe than aggression, and resolutely their own thing: this is music to lose yourself in, rather than to.

    Nothing on this third album could be described as flimsy.

    Whilst the majority of the album is technically admirable for what it does achieve, it is also frustratingly slow going at times.
