THIS ENTRANCING & deeply visual music is made personal by the enticing tonal language of Curtis Harvey and the alchemy of his compunctual soft guitar lines entwining - both acoustic and electric - synchronized so harmonically and uncluttered... Julie Liu returns gently playing the violin and viola again - adding a sadly human touch to the whole of the canvas that transcends these nine songs (three of which are instrumentals) to a higher plateau. Closer to Waltz in sound in tempo and textural density - closer to god while listening to the sounds paint the walls of my house. This is a blockbuster of a recording that no one should be without. A beautiful follow up to last years C by one of america's finest post-rock bands. Getting help from RED RED MEAT folks (Ben Massarella and Brian Deck) and Chicagonian Bundy K. Brown this trio from NY is hovering well above the minimal post-rock genre recording music to live by. REX have tapped into one big fat healthy vein (take for instance "One Stew" or "Oafish") and it gets more morphinism with every spin. (Extra credit for their long time label Southern in making a platter that weighs in at 180 grams i.e. its nice and heavy).
