Moving Mountains - Waves
to be honest, i didn't expect Moving Mountains to improve on their fantastic debut Pneuma, which mixed emo/post-rock sort of like Appleseed Cast but not really (it's really fucking good though and i wholeheartedly recommend it). and to be honest, i don't think they did improve, but it's a solid effort. this album has a greater post-hardcore influence by far with some screams thrown in, and overall the sound is heavier, but the soaring guitars are still there. from what i've read there has been a LOT of backlash though, so if you enjoyed their previous release(s) (i haven't heard Foreword) you might not want to listen to this with those in mind.
