Not much going on in this album in terms of twinkly riffs and powerful rhythms that keep you in a frantic daze the entire album.  Which is not necessarily a bad thing, and in this case it's not a bad thing at all.  Foxing's new album "The Albatross" brings a nice slow paced melodic math rock / emo album to the table and does everything you love about old school jams back to life in 10 songs.  The slow and atmospheric entrance to the songs that dwindles throughout the album has a few jumps here and there that lead you to a faster paced and more energetic stage of noodles and twinkles and riffs everywhere.  It's the ideal album for someone who enjoys this type of music, and I can promise you that you will not be let down by putting this in your playlist.
