A wonderful interpretation of post-metal/math rock. I've heard no other bands that do quite the same thing as Russian Circles.

Mike Sullivan's guitar is densely layered through the use of loop pedals, creating the sound of many guitars in a very cool way that he can reproduce live. Colin Dekuiper's bass is thunderously low, adding a lot of power and heaviness to the music. Dave Turncrantz drums are rock solid and steady, keeping a nice groove throughout, and very technical at times.

Overall, catchy-as-hell music with copious amounts of both soothing ambiance and heavy metal riffing. One of the best debut albums in decades.
