Depends on what you mean by "songwriting". I suppose anyone who makes any kind of concept/themed album/music (I'm talking themed in sound, not ideas) would be "limited" in some way, but I dont find that to necessarily be a problem. But yes, that kind of music is very much about mood and atmosphere, which is probably why I like it.

I heard them on a plane trip to the UK a few weeks ago. They had the bloc party album and this one. I really loved it. Definitely need to get it. I'll check out those links now though - thanks!

It's not bad.
But it's dull and non-threatening

Nothing really interesting here

maybe future listens will unearth new dynamics

Saw Engineers open for Bloc Party and they were fantastic. I intend to give their album a thorough listen.

listen to Slowdive or even My Bloody Valentine for top notch shoegazing

I think part of the problem with the Engineers is the Melodies
it's kinda like Air but with nothing to hook you and draw you in.
That being said I think it would be perfect for listening to as you drift off to sleep

No biggie. As I stated in my first post, they arent the kind of band that everyone will like.

I sure am liking them though

i just listened to it and, i'm not sure if it's because i was up late last night or if it was the music, but i'm feeling sleepy now.

it's chill out music, i guess. kinda dreamy. which isn't bad if you're in the mood for it.

i have to say, one in se7en and forgiveness are great tracks.

I'm pretty sure that's the effect they were going for, after all it is 'dream pop'. I can totally see why some wouldnt like that aesthetic though. Definitely music to "chill" to.

Yes, those are good tracks. One in Seven is a fav. right now, it has a definite post-rock feel to it.

I like 'Come In Out Of The Rain', but I can see how one can find them dull.

I like it though. It's pretty. Don't think I could take a whole album of it though.
