5 stars Frequency Drift's fifth album in six years and the sixth new vocalist if I counted correctly. Now what is to be expected from the album? What is different from their previous efforts? A lot has changed compared to Laid to Rest. While the album only had long songs, this time there are also some shorter songs like Wave and Dissappeared. These songs also showcase Frequency Drift's new singer Isa Fallenbacher who is in my opinion by far the best vocalist the band ever had. Her voice is crystal clear, but also very smooth and she can carry a lot of emotions. I always love melodies and I think on this album they are particularly strong. I can't get the melody of Sagittarius A* out of my head. But not only are the melodies fantastic, the arrangements are also quite stunning. Even the shorter tracks are full of surprises and interesting little bits like the percussion in the song Driven. The short tracks are really great, but the three long songs Suspended, Them and Memory are even better. Them is a dark and brooding piece with soundscapes and beautiful strings at the end. Suspended has a quite catchy chorus and some fabulous flute and guitar solos. But I think the best of the three is Memory. It starts with interesting and evocative soundscapes, continues with a beautiful folky tune and ends in an amazing instrumental. Each and every of the twelve songs is special in its own way. The album is quite long, but I can promise you that there is no boring minute on the CD. In fact I don't think that there will be a more interesting release this year. To me it is an early contender for the album of the year!
