1. On the long road home
2. verses from our captain
3. worth everything ever wished for
4. to be buried and discovered again
5. may be for the better
6. southern skies
7. a dividing line
8. we always think there is going to be more time…
“Pacific.Atlantic is united by its consistent quality and a distinct sense of enjoyment. It seems that the band had fun creating these tracks, so the listener has fun hearing them. The trick on Pacific.Atlantic is to keep things varied. The epic and concise are handled with equal prowess, with tracks ranging from three to eleven minutes and about as many rearrangements of ‘quiet-loud-quiet’ as are actually possible. The distortion may come out frequently but always with full-hearted passion, and in different guises – rock, melodic and that ancient classic, the wall-of-sound. In equal measures the band drives riffs the size of ocean liners and soaks the soul with gorgeous rowboat-sized melodies. Heads nod; lips whistle. Throughout the album, things are kept in flux – captivating, and irresistibly stirring. The joy of the opener periodically breaks to the surface, never being fought back, but slipping away again with its natural life-cycle.” – The Silent Ballet
“a fiery fivesome with a complimentary illusory style that works through nice movements in instrumental build-ups and breakdowns to create the perfect mixture of astral projection and aggro-release. The End of the Ocean has a penchant for crafting tunes that move freely from beautiful to trippy to heart-tugging to fist clenching without seemingly overly-contrived, just well crafted.” – toledo.com
“the end of the ocean have released a monumental slab of instrumental post-rock; there’s nothing I can say that’s going to do pacific·atlantic justice. It’s one of those experiences that just leaves you wowed. I had the pleasure of seeing these guys live and it was even more intense. Why haven’t you tracked down a copy yet?” – gerauschkrieg.blogspot.com
