Our old love, math rock, has reared its head again in my musical rotation. Majmoon isn't exactly breaking news, but they were sort of overlooked by me and I am pretty sure others when this album came out. The German band has considerable skills at making energized instrumental tracks that is on the fine, beautiful line betwixt math rock and post-rock. If you've been a reader for a bit you'll know of my intense desire to have long, building, epic songs on an album of this sort. Shimponauts Journey does not disappoint on this account. All in all, a finely-crafted addition to any math rock or post-rock collection.
