Great review, however I think you should have added Patagonia to those songs that "make you want to throw themselves yourself into the blistering Sun while reading up for your Trigonometry III final."

The last half of Trident Tail is one of my favorite moments on this record. That guitar line is so catchy & the sax solo is odd but fits so well.

Love this record.

I am really surprised with this album. I had a brief period with Drugs to Dear Youth but it never really held my attention long enough. However, this album is insanely good - the vocals are a really nice addition and it's a little more accesible. Tera Melos have certainely found themselves' a new fan.

Great album, although I do agree with the review that it slightly tails off toward the end.

hmm, this band/record sounds nothing like the fall of troy. it's unfortunate that they are constantly compared to them. now that their wikipedia page is gone perhaps they'll stop getting that. that aside, good review!

I can see some of the comparison, but certain parts (especially the stuff with the horns) remind me of Naked City.
