2 stars The first BLACKFIELD seemed to be a good filler between two most anticipated PT albums. Good Pop-Rock songs, especially "Hello", "Pain" and the name-sake one. When last year I heard that Aviv/Steve plan to continue their collaboration, I thought: "Please. no, leave it as an experiment..."

But here we go again. The same way melancholic and introvert Pop-Rock with some PTish moments, but I don't think we should mention any other bands when it comes to BLACKFIELD. They are already have sound of their own, and all you can do is to love it or hate it. I've chosen the third road - I chose it as a background music. To be honest, this is the only positive thing "II" can offer me. Pale and weak even in compareness to debut, it has not much to enjoy. And leave alone Prog or "I-want-to-be-challenged" attitude, I'm talking about music itself!

No bashing here - I just didn't like it. If you liked the first one (like I actually did - it was good but non-essential in fact), you may try this one...if not you'd better abstain from spending your money on another Pop-Rock CD.
