21.06.2011 Long Distance Calling can have the same effect as a good poem. If you connect to it, it takes you to a whole new place where you can just enjoy the beauty of it all. In this case, that is provided by the intricate and often contemplative music of Long Distance Calling, which continue to offer us valuable albums. But much like good poetry, it mostly goes unnoticed.

Their largely instrumental music bends and twists, never afraid of invading and progressing into varied musical territories. Immerse yourself in the slick waters of these 'Invisible Giants', yet to be classified as such. It may not leave you completely satisfied, but it doesn't disappoint.

Listening to the album right now. I still prefer avoid the light though. But i'm going to give it a few listens more for sure.

I understand what you're saying. You just have to love "Avoid The Light" for what it was and give this one a chance

Rating: 8 Slightly less refreshing than their previous album. But still an excellent one! And another great song with a guest vocalist.

Great ambient music if you're studying or reading or whatnot Although it sometimes distracts you just to bang your head

  Again, a great album!
