There are whole armies of instrumental postrockish bands out there but Donít Mess With Texas from Zagreb are for sure one of the best of all of them. Especially live they are an awesome and intense experience.
This intensity has been captured on this record as well. The dominant lead instruments are guitar and piano. Compared to the self titled debut the dynamics are worked out a little better and the piano lines are more diversified. The record is mostly in a laid back kind of mood. The heavier eruptions seam rather moderate but I guess in a live situation they might blast pretty much. Itís a listening record. Best listened to in an autumn night with thunderstorm and all. It is slow and urgent like good doom metal but in the same time dreamy and spherical like postrock. I really like it.
