Amongst the Monoliths is a step up from previous, which is really something since the previous albums i have enjoyed to a great extent.
Algos is very talented at building harmony and melody by the use of guitar and a subtle piano backing, with a strong bass line on top of it. For me, he really excels at building emotion in his music especially when the drums settle down and the guitar speaks for itself.
I find that I like all the track's but 5,6,8,9,10 are my favorites. I definitely love the intro to 5, the beauty of instrumental 6, the emotion of 8 and 9 and odysseys end is a great closing piece.
The man behind Algos is a great guy, had the pleasure of doing some of the album art, please support him and check out all his works, especially if you love song 6 then the instrumental cd you will love!
