Dann 'the djentle giant' NASA, NASA, we have a problem : we cannot land. All our system is fucked up, our ships and our minds have drift away, they roam in outter space and don't want to come back to the plain and grey reality. This album made our crew craving for reaching the center of the universe. There's no chance we return to Earth without having this kind of songs with us. End of transmission. Favorite track: Cassiopeia.

Barf Carcass It's not until a minute or two into the second track when hints of a long lost friend, Rinoa, begin to appear. Ancients hold nothing back in their quest to produce grand (or grandiose?) post-rock. It is a predictable soundtrack for a movie to be made, but It is still far better than the mediocrity that Explosions in the Sky have become. If the first 6 minutes of Cassiopeia doesn't give you goosebumps, you have no soul, my friend. Favorite track: Cassiopeia.

Simon Betts I'm drawn again and again to that huge spaciousness surrounding each crescendo and ambient interlude... Favorite track: Arcturus.

Calum McMillan So often post-rock is really boring. But this record feels alive with emotion. It's stellar. Favorite track: Satellites.

Daniel C *Ancients do a great job of capturing that cosmic atmosphere that the artwork and song titles suggest. This band features members of *Shels and Rinoa and it totally lives up to that pedigree in every way. Favorite track: Constellations.
