Dreamend impressed on 2002's split 'Preface' EP with Monster Movie. The new full length effort embellishes their sound further with a set that meets post-rock and Low at a crossroads, encapsulated in the first song 'Of Raven And Winds'. Typically whey-faced vocals are the order of the day here, punctuated by Godspeed-type guitar whirlwinds. With this ground already being covered by multiple soundalikes it's essential that the songs are strong and - to be fair - some of them are. 'Four Days In May' reveals a mastery of the sense of space and steady drumming that made Breathless' 'Blue Moon' one of the best post-rock albums in recent times. 'Mur Mur' is bolstered by a strong melody but the best moment of all is saved for the quitest tune: the low-slung guitars and tender vocals of 'Can't Take You'. Their willingness to restrain a tendency for bombast could yet serve them well and their decision to insert a different photograph and text into each record sleeve is a nice, individualist touch.
