The Octopus is a pretty good album. I haven't quite taken it in properly yet as I haven't been listening to it that much even though I downloaded it just before Christmas, but I'll probably grow to love it eventually. Their s/t debut is an incredible album and the production is top-notch, it takes you on a nice spaced-out journey with lots of different moods, textures and some killer riffs. One of the big problems with releasing such a great debut is that their following releases are always going to be compared to it, which is probably why Insider was written off despite being a good album. I think with The Octopus they've done something a bit different and it's strong enough to stand up on it's own.
