This is on the outer edges of what I will consider for review at all. Cold Body Radiation are a one-man band of the school that is mixing melodic, atmospheric BM with sounds from shoegaze and post-rock. I don't dislike this that much, but then that's because there just is not much to it. You get a lot of floaty, spacey melodies and songs with a lot of room and atmosphere, but it is not a very definite atmosphere - this album has a feel, but it doesn't really make you feel anything in particular. There is a lot of music on here, but for all the pretension, there is not a single real idea to be found in the songwriting. This isn't offensive or annoying, but it is empty and meaningless.
