Carsten Pieper So, the tags given by the band are acoustic, ambient and electronic, which might seem a strange mix, but describes this album quite well! These Mancunians really have their own sound which is quite an achievement. I think, we can call the music proggy, but in the best sense of the word, not copying other artists/styles but creating something new! Favorite track: Crystal Catcher.
