The instrumental post-metal band Pelican are careful not to retread on old turf in their fifth release Forever Becoming, and even within the context of the album itself there isn't any overstatement, no overusing any repetition which might leave listeners completely awash in feelings of "same-old, same-old."

This band has really become stale IMO. Nothing innovative has come out of their last couple of releases. Not saying I don't like them but I may just give this album a feeler. Although judging by this song they sure have tightened up the production.

Have to say I agree with you. I found An Inch Above The Sand a while ago, and it's never been good for anything but background noise.

"What We All Come To Need" was stale and a bit useless, despite its title. Hope this one is better, I'd like to hear something refreshing. Cover art is cool.

Oh man, I feel the complete opposite. After a few ho-hum/boring releases they have made a monumental comeback. I really like it. The production is the key for me. Songs are great but they also have a tight feel to them, more so than any of their other albums.
