2 stars Not as good as the book ... but surely with more speeches than the book! Really, too much words in this album, and a kind of progressive that deny its meaning and reason to be: progressive is the contrary of static, what this album is. The music goes on for all the tracks, but nothing hits me either good or bad. I agree totally with crimson 87 review, this is only a sort of style exercise, very well done, but unfortunally too empty, too poor in terms of feelings, don't goes beyond the ears. When you're asking yourself to listen it again or choose another one, the choice will be the second most of times: result=2 stars.
