Most of the time, I find that they sound like Balance and Composure, but then I also pick up a bit of Seahaven here and there. Either way, this album is fantastic and the review is very fitting.
Right there with you. I also picked up some "Spirit Desire"-esque Tigers Jaw vibes on "Ancient West". I love this album, and have been listening to it faithfully since I picked it up the other day. If you like that emotionally drained and very beautiful yell/sing style, then this album will satisfy just about craving you have had for that lately. The Guitar and bass slow dance around each other, and the intricate drums drive it straight to your heart. Enjoy.
