Rising Toward Reflection is Ancient Albatross’ third and final release, and also the band’s first full length. The music was written during the course of just over a year, and the album was recorded and produced by the band. Originally planned to be released as an instrumental record, the band had the idea to call upon some of South Florida’s most talented singers to lend a hand. The music on here is diverse, being written over a long period of time, so it made sense to have different singers for each song. This record reflects all of the band’s past and present influences, and sees the group continue not to be afraid to write outside the box.
