That being said, there is a great deal of repetition within the album as well, both in musical phrasing and structure. The songs tend to start out simpler, quieter (though not necessarily quiet), and then slowly build, adding instruments and layers in regular intervals. Sometimes, like in "High Line," things break down into their barest elements, and sometimes, like in "Magnolia Cutoff," the arrangements reach nearly Badly Drawn Boy proportions in their ornateness.

This album has an average beat per minute of 120 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 63/180 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page.

Chessie is one of the most unique bands going today, if only for the fact their output is all concept albums centered around locomotives. Now as the duo of Ben and Stephen, their six years late follow-up to one of the New York Times best album of 2001, Manifest, sees that album's ambient come slacker-rock formula strengthened immensely. The synthetic beats have been seriously toned down.

With their new album, Manifest, Chessie continues their musical exploration of the railway environment, this time focusing on the freight trains and railway corridors that simultaneously divide and connect America's landscapes. Using guitars, bass, drums, signal processing, samples, analog synths, organs, horns, and other instruments, Chessie captures the interplay between the manufactured and natural worlds that railroads inhabit

A smattering of electronics meets a healthy dose of post-rock on Chessie's fourth album, MANIFEST. Though the opening track, "Take the Lark" is all electronic, the guitar fuzz comes in heavily on "Intercity" and "Long Bridge." High-pitched squeals interrupt the measured tones of "High Line," but overall, most of the tracks have a delicate sensibility and a soft, gossamer construction. For example, a lonely train serves as percussion for the spare "CP Azure," while "Magnolia Cutoff" almost sounds like a lost Postal Service track. A train-like rhythm re-emerges in "Alphabet Route," but "Hoosac" rides out the rails on waves of sound. A nice soundtrack for your next Amtrak ride.
