Their third record is a series of (r)evolutionary instrumental ruminations on touring and the homogenous effects of globalization. With shorter songs and expanded catchiness, "City Of Echoes" is Pelican's "pop album". After exploring Earth's melodicism, Goatsnake riffery, and Hum post-rock textures, they've now decided to drastically reduce their song length and deliver a driving rock record. "One minute you're being sucked down by an undertow of surging, cascading guitar riffs and crashing drums, and the next you're being lulled to sleep at the bottom of an ocean of soothing ambience. A positively elemental album for scope, ambition, and vision" - Kerrang. "Pelican sculpt triumphant epics as awe-inspiring and unstoppable as shifting glaciers" - Revolver.

Even if they were beginning to borrow from themselves, one of metal's most melodic musicians make massively moving material.
This cd was kind of a letdown for me. For people that are new to Pelican I wouldn't recommend starting out on this album because it's boring and predictable. Read morePublished on February 16, 2009 by Jobey
I hate to come up here and write anything less than a 5 star review given what just happened to these poor guys in Europe (they had their equipment stolen) so I will go as far as... Read morePublished on October 29, 2008 by Mike
Pelican seems to have done something few bands are willing to do. Lose the singer. So, without an egocentric frontman to muck it up for them(i.e. axl rose, M. Read morePublished on August 31, 2008 by J. A. Brickler
Pelican was new to me with this disc, and came highly recommended. They did not disappoint in the slightest.
Thick, melodic, heavy, occasionally kinda sludgy. Read more
