    Strikes a differant chord

    FSOL isn't using as much of their old ambient electronica syle on this album. The Isness relies heavily on real instruments, making this album unique and completely diffeant from anything previously released by the group. They even sing on it. It may be a real shock to hear at first but it's still worth a listen.
