Windows in the Sky’s album review in The Vancouver Sun

5 things to know about Windows in the Sky by Alex Henry Foster

1. Full-on Post-Rockin’ Roll. Huge cascading guitar chords, echoed spoken word vocals, distantly reverberating choruses and as much overlaid orchestration as you can fit on a track.
