It's debatable what Por Nada's favourite time in music really is. This fine album is bathed in the chiming guitars, pregnant pauses and atmospheric rock of The Chameleons but also has shades of more recent post-rock acts such as The Great Depression. One could describe 'A Huge Granite Structure...' as a hybrid of both bands but the endeavours of this group of Canadians certainly stand out on their own merits. 'A Man Of Action' begins hopefully but by the end of the song, the crashing nightmarish effects have taken over and so the pattern for light and dark continues. 'With Ribs Intact' is essentially the closest post-punk gets to a conventional pop song whilst 'Monster Jam' manages to be both reflective and dramatic at the same time. Meanwhile controversial ice skating star Nancy Kerrigan is given a studied, angst-ridden tribute that could give Mogwai a run for their money. A shame this recording clocks in at only half an hour but the guitar work is brilliant and inventive throughout.
