Another year older and perhaps slightly wiser, I had to do the wise thing and buy this stunning effort by Beltez. While less avant-garde and more direct than A Grey Chill and a Whisper, this album is a tour de force of melancholic and dark melodies, equally comfortable at breakneck speeds as it is in its more contemplative moments. Atmospheric to the hilt, the robust production value makes this feel far more powerful than most ABM contemporaries. Be wise, do the right thing, and buy this!
