Too samey? Definitely. Astronoid create some very nice soundscapes here though. The vocals are sublime and remind me a lot of the ethereal tones of Ben Gibbard from Death Cab For Cutie. It's a strange contrast of triumphant sadness. The vocal range is lacking a lot though unfortunately and is probably the biggest criticism I have of this. Still, I'm enjoying it.

I had never heard of Astronoid before listening to this album, but they definitely have that blackgaze/shoegaze type vibe, without the black metal type vocals. Instrumentally and lyrically, the album is very good. However, every song sounds the same, which guides me in the direction of them being a one trick pony (wow, we've perfected our sound, let's make everything sound like this). Again, this was not a bad listen, but it was just lacking in the initial concept of the album.

Inverted Deafheaven is a bit dull and one note. Even the artwork looks like a Sunbather ripoff. Sounds like Mew went metal.
