Surf Solar starts off with some synths that oddly remind me of The Goonies. Not just in a “Oh that sounds familiar” sense but a really evocative way that my mind can’t control. I really love this track because it doesn’t really feel like ten and a half minutes. The way it’s handled I just get drawn in and entranced by it, despite its repetitive nature. Really great track.

Rough Steez is a bit heavier, kind of nice but not on the same level as the last track. More generic in a sense. The song transitions right into The Lisbon Maru, another piece that is long and benefits from it. The songs are like an electronic version of post rock, building up and just grabbing onto you.

Olympians is the best track on the album. It follows a similar format to the other two longer tracks, but is just amazing and does it even better. By the end I just don’t want it to stop. Phantom Limb is fairly good but again pales in comparison to the longer tracks. Space Mountain is very good as well.

Flight Of The Feathered Serpent is yet another fantastic song to close out the album. I really don’t listen to this album often enough or give it enough credit. It’s incredibly satisfying and I love getting lost in it. I guess the problem is that I see it as more of an album experience and so I don’t really like listening to just one song by itself or anything.

Final Rating: 9/10
