At a time when guitar instrumental albums seemed to be running out of ideas, Montana collective This Is A Process Of A Still Life provided the creating spark with a debut built upon layers and layers of gorgeous melody and emotion. The follow-up retains the prettiness but is more considered and less instant this time around. Tracks such as 'Maya' and 'All My Blessings Are A Curse' favour more drawn-out, slower approaches, partially influenced by Labradford. There's also a number of tracks - particularly 'Constantly Under Surveillance' - which benefit from a rich organ sound. Best of all is the languid melodrama of 'Three Hours Between Planes'; its quiet desperation being an ideal soundtrack to those unnecessary delays at airports. Crucially, by holding their emotions back at the final moment, they retain their status as a class act in a busy field.
