Debut album of 8 songs from Czech band Waawe. "…If you listen to Waawe with only half your attention, you're going to write them off as another emo band. They've got the loud/quiet/loud guitar thing going on, and the strained vocals too. But they're not throwaway punk rock. There's too much going on here. Perhaps there's a little emo in the group's foundation, but it shares space with a healthy accumulation of prog rock. Waawe starts with the same basic building blocks that Sunny Day Real Estate used to create The Rising Tide, but -- and this is important -- they leave out their egos. A penchant for instrumental cross-pollination doesn't hurt them either, as Timestorm Was the Signal bristles with unexpected musical voices and combinations." Czech import.
