Description/Reviews
It's fitting then that Eupnea, the long-awaited return from the band, sees them harking back to their earliest days, while rolling in all of the musical experiments and experience they've gathered in the intervening years. The cinematic soundscapes of Hammer and Anvil? Check. The dark atmosphere and synths of Amor Vincit Omnia? Check. The gauzy psych-prog of their debut? Ch-check. For some bands, this would simply be retreading old ground. For Pure Reason Revolution this relaunch is a rebirth, producing their most confident record yet, which takes them in a new direction while weaving in the elements that endeared them to fans in the first place.
