5 stars I am writing this review for the second time as my first one vanished with all the other reviews I did. Server crash?

This is to me still the album of 2013 so far. The eclectic approach simply adds so much to our beloved genre that I have been missing before. There are guitars reminiscent of The Cure or U2's The Edge without ever actually copying the style of any of them. The vocal lines are indeed quite catchy, and the voice production is simply stunning: Ever so often, Thomas' voice is pure and direct in its emotional grandesse, but there are all kinds of filters and panning tricks involved to underline certain perspectives that appear on the album, as it seems. The same goes for the rest of the mix: With so much love to detail, this seems to be a kind of acoustic movie rather than just an album. You should use your headphones definitely when listening to this.

The compositions remind me of a new kind of supergroup featuring people as disparate as Steve Rothery, Trent Raznor, Thom Yorke, Jon Anderson and Tony Banks. Again, these are only mild guidelines! There is not really a moment when the album sounds like any of their bands. So go and have a listen. This is certainly, as all great art, not for everyone, but make sure you won't miss the album. This is different and extremely interesting at least!
