Name checked indie post-rock darlings Winsdsor seemed to always lack a pivotal melodic glue usually meant to justify all the indulgent repetition taking place inside the sub-genre, though they are rightly credited with helping to aid solidifying these introspective musical techniques that later became refined with other artists. But people seem to overvalue this band, who did not originate, innovate or elevate any real facets of this seldom realized approach of composed electric rock meditation. For the most part, they focus on what their limited and potentially hypnotic angle mines best; repeating, distorted, guitar instrumental lines on top of any sonic embellishments that compliment the stretched out nature of their insecure songwriting. Oddly the mediocre set of b-sides from the band, as indicative it is to the wallowing, hollow nature of their songs, often at least feels strangely empty as opposed to some of their lesser received work feeling predictably empty. Between empty drones of lazy melody and pretentious soundscapes of offensive delusion the band still manage to land a few solid, even gripping songs on the fans only disc.

this is the music you like to listen to in the morning; you've just awakened; maybe you've got a little hangover, maybe not; you stroll on downstairs, you make yourself some nice hot coffee, open up some windows, let the fresh air come in; and then you put on this cd, and the music floats you know, it floats like the sea and it takes you away; away from wherever you are, to a place where it's nice and calm and everything is light-blue and fluffy and everybody you see is nice to you and they say hi to you, and windsor for the derby keeps you in this place for more then seventy minutes, maybe not the best seventy minutes of your life, but good seventy minutes nevertheless, and then the cd is over and there is silence or not, maybe there is this guy that lives across the street from you who's always making things in his backyard, and maybe he's hammering; maybe he has his chainsaw on; what to do mate? you've guessed it: just put on earnest powers + once again.
