The guitar sound that opens this one is reminiscent of Explosions in the Sky but it's far less post rock from that point as El Lago reside somewhere in the dream pop stratosphere. The songs are led by Lauren Eddy's vocals which have a lot of Kate Bush about them - all twisting and ranging, kind of doing their own thing against the dream-pop background of the songs. I think they're best exemplified on "Room To Room" which twists and turns and is a brilliant song.
