Not one song outside of "Throwing a Donner Party at Sea" really grabs your attention. It's just pleasant music that drifts in and then drifts out, and I think the Pink Floyd influence that drove a lot of the slow sections of Metridium Fields has been all but abandoned. I love what they did with the whale-song sax in the title track of that album, for example, and it doesn't overstay its welcome, but this just doesn't MAKE me want to hear it. It just sort of happens.
Mortals are mortar and life is the fuse.
