5 stars The album I have listened to most over the last 12 months and one which I believe will be referred to in years to come as a classic of its genre. I found it operatic and true theatre as Dark Suns takes you on a rollercoaster ride of human emotion, feeling the angst of the human condition, one minute punching you in the face with staccato drums and bass, then a healing balm, the weird and the wonderful, strange and familiar, light and darkness, heavy stormy then peaceful (a little like life itself really - existence). This is no guilty pleasure. Possibly one of the truest musical encactments of the authors intent overall as an album, the first class musicianship fuses together a soundscape, spectrum of experiences and this album feels like the work of a band that spent its formative years building itself up to this seminal piece of art. There are many great albums but few could lay claim to the creative input, blood, sweat, tears and consistent excellence of this. The five stars have been used sparingly. I spent 12 months considering it. I don't think that there is a note or a lyric on this album that wasn't meant to be there. Buy it if you don't have it already and enjoy playing it loud and often.
