3 stars A good band with a wrong name IMHO. When I first heard of Wolverine, I thought it was an another Black Metal band from the north, but I was wrong, there is almost no heavy guitar in this album. I know that they started their career with a heavier sound, but for any excuse this name doesn't suit band's sound in any way.

I know the band can do really well compositions but I think the order of the songs in this album is wrong. The first two songs are really slow motion and you can't get into it really easy. Once you are in it, the song called Tightrope, actually it is not a song I would call it as "noise" takes all your concentration away. For God's sake the next song Carousel is a good one and it is the first time you hear overdriven guitars. Trust and Pandomime are similar songs and they are really good worth listening to many times. Then comes another "noise" called Red Canvas. I am asking again and again, why they are doing this to themselves? Red Canvas and Tightrope are not even music, they sound like random noise which can just be a sabotage. The next song called Tied With Sin is perhaps one of the best songs in this album and the last song called "The Final Redemption" is a perfect final to the album.

Overall quality of music is good but the engineering is sometimes weak(IMHO). The bass guitar is almost absent in the album, he almost does nothing but following the guitar. No special effort from the bass. I would give 4 stars if there were no songs called Tightrope and Red Canvas, but it would be more fair to rate it as 3 stars.
