Specialists/collaborators reviews

UMUR
"Avoid The Light" is the 2nd full-length studio album by German post rock act Long Distance Calling. The album was released through Superball Music/SPV in April 2009.

The music on "Avoid The Light" is pre-dominantly guitar driven post rock with the two guitarists complimenting each other and playing countermelodies. The drumming by Janosch Rathmer is still a treat IMO. The man is a greatly skilled and busy drummer. The music on the album is fully instrumental except for the song "The Nearing Grave" which features a guest vocal performance by Jonas Renkse from Katatonia. It´s a good choice that Long Distance Calling have opted to include some vocals on the album because it makes the album more dynamic. The instrumental songs work well too though.

The production is professional and well sounding. Suiting the music perfectly.

I really hoped that "Avoid The Light" would make me appreciate Long Distance Calling more but to be honest I feel just about the same about this album as I did with the last. It´s a great album and I enjoy listening to the album on occasion but it seldom reaches the excellent mark IMO and thereby stays pretty much in the standard zone. If you enjoy melodic, melancholic and very well played post rock you might enjoy this a bit more than I do though and it´s definitely still a recommendable album even though I have my reservations. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
