London / Manchester four piece **Engineers have made the grand statement in their biog that "We're not like anyone else".
What they mean is that they're a million light years away musically and indeed stylistically from such peers as Bloc Party or The Others. The understated 'Forgiveness' will not secure them rave reviews. Their anonymity will not see them set upon by style magazines or Sunday supplements.
So, in that sense, Engineers certainly aren't like anyone else. The hushed vocals, sighing strings and ambient atmospherics bring to mind Elbow or Air (especially on the B-side 'Stake To Glory'). Fans of these two groups may find something of interest here but those who demand something more substantial will find 'Forgiveness' hard going.
