"This is my favorite album by Rachel's.

The only part I dislike is the pause and churning noise as my discman readies itself to repeat the whole thing.

"Rhine & Courtesan" is my favorite track. In it, emotionally charged stretches of music fade into quiet; with nothing but the sounds of sailboats.

The use of volume is very important. The lapses into quiet encourage the listener to think of the record as a whole instead of a collection of tracks; to submerge her or himself into the brilliant, quirky world that narrates without words.

The album is seamlessly put together. Each musician gives a peak performance, no shortcomings rupture the beautiful feel that it creates.

I agree with the bands other viewers have referenced especially Tristeza, and also find this akin to Bright's quieter tracks.

A Side Note:

Also, check out one disc by ShiFt (not shift, nor Shift). Otherwise a terrible hardrock band, ShiFt put out one EP "A Folding Sieve", that starts of with a song "Rolling."

"After hearing Music For Egon Shiele, I knew I had to get this album but I had no idea that it would be so incredible. This cd takes you on a surreal journey to places you never thought you were capable of dreaming of. It's uplifting and tragic all at the same time. The exquisite sounds of bells and ships captures your soul so that you really feel as if you were there. I don't know how else to describe it, it just makes you want to float away."
Exellent!

"This is really a very good piece of music.At least it is very different from some famous post-rock bands that sound almost the same.I just don't find it how they belong to post-rock and why this group is recommended along with MOGWAI,EXPLOSION IN THE SKY or GODSPEED YOUR BLACK EMPEROR.The only band that I see some similarity in musical and stylistical approach is THE PENGUIN CAFE ORCHESTRA.Nevertheless,buy it!"
