Emo with periods of post-rock. The emo parts are very Taking Back Sunday. Lots of octaves, sixths with the bottom going to the four. Lots of group vocals, some painful whining at the breakdowns, and quieter post rock sections that are more explosions in the sky. I think the lyrics form some sort of symbolic narrative. Uhh...you can read the liner notes...FCC clean.Picks 6,1,3.


*1-(4:31) Mid. Instr. start. gentle with fast eight note harmonies. -2:40 bursts to sunny yet pained. Last 30 gets fuller, more bass, anthemic.
2-(5:32) Mid/Fast. Kind of picks up where last song left off. Two vox. Midway breaks down. Gentle fast eight note thing again. Full, kiddy chorus enters occasionally. -:40 bare vocals against quiet bass and snare roll.
*3-(6:02) Slower bass heavy, pounding entrance. Rock guitar plays distinctive fifth intervals against melody. Whining at -3:00, chorus joins in. Builds to the end. Ends on quiet chord.
4-(3:56) Instr. Starts post-rock, explosions in the sky. A slow crescendo to the end. Beat enters at -2:20 to end. No emo.
5-(6:12) Starts post-rock. Breaks into mid/fast standard emo. Some whining. Louds and quiets. Ends quiet.
**6-(7:22) Post-rock. -4:25 gets heavier. At -3:05 music covers a recorded female narrative. -1:40 the story ends and the music tapers off to end. Think City of Caterpillar.
7-(5:38) Fast emo. -3:38 stays on the epic/angry (for emo) side of things.
8-(8:55) Distressed, pained whining. Emo rock. vox gets a little rough around the edges on this one. -3:40 quiets down and builds instr. to end.
