This brilliant British collective never lets us down – and here, on their majestic fifth album, they seem to soar towards the heaven even more – with a righteous spirit that comes through from the very first note, and which never seems to let up at all as they spin out some long, beautiful tracks that are filled with heavenly

Titles include "Calling", "Northern Spiral", "Professor", "Incandescent Rage", and "Unicorn".
