'Chevaliers' artwork might have battle-scarred post-rock fans running in terror due to the existence of another paint-by-number instrumental act, but those who judge this book by its cover will miss be missing out on a pleasantly refreshing album. Perhaps the best quality for a post-rock band to have is to not give a flying fuck what anyone thinks of the music it creates; this internal self-satisfaction ensures that artists stay true to oneself, and this quality can be appealing to listeners in that it readily lends itself to creative and expressive individuals. The science behind the correlation between individuality, apathy of criticism, and artistic quality is pending, but I'm a big believer that it exists. Wess Meets West has that irresistible spark of confidence that draws the listener into its music. Regardless of whatever anyone else thinks, this is a band who digs the music it creates. With four years under its belt, Wess Meets West certainly has had its fair share of growing pains over the years, but Chevaliers sees the band connecting that confidence with real quality, and the album is all the better for it. The music itself attains a diverse list of references, from Gifts from Enola to From Monument to Masses, and it may even sneak in some more highbrow names like Slow Six and The Mercury Program. With four tracks pushing or near the ten-minute mark, it's pretty clear that the band is aiming for unfiltered, pure emotion here, but it has the songwriting chops to back it up and a heart of gold to fuel it. If album highlight "Leaving Behind a Whaling Economy" doesn't get the blood pumping, it may be time to check your pulse.'
