Description/Reviews
Whitewater, however, is anything but your straightforward classic prog rock.  The band plays ambient, psychedelic musings that somewhat resemble Pink Floyd’s more atmospheric side, and much of it does include expressive guitar work and an occasional rock portion.  Most of it is extremely slow-paced and subtle, so this definitely isn’t for everyone.  However, as someone who really enjoys ambient music, I find myself liking what I hear on this album, at least at first.  I wouldn’t call what they do “post-rock”, but it’s definitely closer to that than your typical progressive rock.
