8.5
In The Melancholy Hour, Vertigo Steps take a plunge into the depths of melancholy, where they will get closer to themselves as a band. The previous Steps To Vertigo seemed to be a foundation for them before they took off and reached a higher plane.

It feels as though this album is a natural development for the band and not any sort of regression; on the contrary, The Melancholy Hour has more memorable moments, which adds more value to an already inventive debut release.
