The Photo Atlas gets four stars in AP
In the May 2009 issue of Alternative Press, the Photo Atlas is the subject of two write-ups, one detailing the band's trajectory since parting ways with Stolen Transmission, its previous label, and the other is in the form of a a four (out of five) star review of the act's new five-song EP, To Silenty Provoke the Ghost. The favorable nod (posted after the jump) is noteworthy for a number of reasons. Aside from the fact that AP is a widely read national pub, it's pretty much the gospel for the Photo Atlas's primary constituency. What's more, getting a review in print at all these days is something of a feat itself. Sadly, with Blender going the way of pager technology recently, AP is shaping up to be among the last major music magazines printed, outside of Spin and Rolling Stone. As cool as it is to get a positive notices in the blogosphere, there's still some sort of romance to seeing your album reviewed in print, even better if it's a positive assessment.
