About Album

“The first album by Maine-based post-rockers Cerberus Shoal (following the lovely Lighthouse in Athens EP from 1996) may surprise fans of the group’s better-known records. While later albums by the ever-shifting collective feature a greater emphasis on exotic instrumental textures, the arrangements of these five songs are quite simple, featuring subtle percussion, occasional horns, and layers of guitars and keyboards; comparisons to both past masters of space rock like Atom Heart Mother-era Pink Floyd, and more contemporary figures like Flying Saucer Attack and Godspeed You Black Emperor! are inevitable. Several songs feature rambling spoken recitations by Chriss Sutherland, a rather pretentious element that the group wisely phased out on later records. Reissues of …And Farewell to Hightide include a separate disc with the two-part “Lighthouse in Athens.”” – Stewart Mason
