Bursting with promise, overflowing with "wow" moments and played every bit as visionary as it is titled, "No Words To Voice Our Hopes And Fears" adds an entirely new level to Goonies Never Say Die's already-impressive musical architecture.

A stunning, intricate, unique and fascinating work of progressive instrumental rock, their second full-length album proffers a facelift to the post-rock scene through not only one grande cinematic journey, but ten self-contained units of sprawling sonic adventure. Through heart wrenching soundscapes of emotion, atmosphere, darkness and serenity, they tell tales organically through instruments that seemingly have their own ongoing dialog...without the distracting crutch of lyrics.

It's epic and endearing, triggering feelings without words, pairing echoed guitars and gentle keys with passive-aggressive drum lines to vary the degree of excitement and fear. From its strong opening to its gripping ending, every instrument flows together in an organic yet complex, fluid package. Each track is worthy. Each song has a message. Driving and inspiring yet emotionally trying at the same time, No Words To Voice Our Hopes And Fears will stand out as one of the best instrumental rock albums of the year and securely fastens GOONIES place as ones to look out for. Post-rock par excellence.
