As any journalist (or for that matter, anyone who has any interest in writing) would know, the objective of writing is to keep the piece as short as possible - short and sweet - spark the interest of the reader, and get to the point - to relay what many take pages to do, but in just a few sentences. Anyway, Cave In I'm pretty sure are not journalists. The songs on this EP are long, drawn out, and quite frankly - boring. By the time anything happens that sparks my interest, I'm already reaching to change the track.
Though musically similar to their last outing (Jupiter), Tides of Tomorrow is a weak attempt at doing something with music that I really don't think Cave In is cut out for. But that's not to say they aren't good musicians - quite the opposite in fact - it's blatantly displayed on this album (with intricate guitar work and healthy dose of ethereal noises), but I just think that they should stick to what they know (knew) best - fast, screamy hardcore.
If you somehow stumble across a free copy of this record, I'd advise using it in the following ways: as a "chill-out" type of record to listen to (similar to what you would do with an, ahem, Radiohead cd), or as a drink coaster. Both will work fine. If you want to hear good Cave In, purchase Beyond Hypothermia, or even Until Your Heart Stops.
