4th Sign of the Apocalypse is a difficult band to pin down to a single genre of music. 'Dance For Me Thumbalina' is a slow dubby piece with Drum'n'Bass percussion slowed down to a snails pace. 'Miss Meh' is a subdued Gothic piece with thick bass, plodding guitar and metallic drums. 'On A Slightly Higher Moonbeam Than Death' conists of distorted wind patterns, spoken word style intro vocals, and a subdued ambient background. 'Bleeding' starts out with typewriter samples that build into a non-standard cadence of guitars, home made percussion and deep Gothic vocals. As you can see, the first half of the album treads across more musical territory than most bands see in a lifetime, all without sounding discordant. "Lost Hour World" is a well executed melange of styles that reassures me that there is still original music being written.
