Atlas is probably the result of streaming The Mars Volta through a black hole.

When Battles' debut, MIRRORED, comes on with the frenzy of drums of "Race: In" (quickly augmented by a twitchy guitar and some whistling), you know you're in for something new. Though you could classify them under the vague, amorphous term of 'post rock,' they forge their own direction with their careful instrumentation and tighter song structure than is ordinarily associated with 'post rock.' "Atlas," for instance, has a real swagger to it, something you'd stick your hips out to. "Tonto," on the other hand, is looser, but still with a forward drive, while "Rainbows" revels in its dissonances and its januty mid-section, culminating with a bold vocal finish. "Snare Hangar" takes a severely syncopated rhythm and offsets it with playful vocal piping. The final track, "Race: Out," adds some looped strings into the mix, as well as those thundering drums. A album, definitely, to reflect upon.
