3 stars Following a stark cello lament to kick off the proceedings, this relentless charge is off to the races with a mixed bag of styles, ranging from razor-sharp anger-coated statements that evolve into softer passages , where serene flute and agile piano tinkling interweave. A powerful concoction that will keep the listener on pins and needles, smoking guitars mercilessly plow into themes that suddenly yield to some outright jazzy piano soloing and a rather angry vocalist who belts out contemporary lyrics with hellbent urgency. With titles like "Good Grief", "Urban Child","When They Cry", "Wounded" and the stark "Reasons to Live" , this Norwegian band has a CD that should guarantee a jolly (oops, a SOMBRE) time. I like melancholy and I am a rather nostalgic kind of music fan but this does fall into the more Doom-Gloom "goth" style and while I do like most of it, it"s not really my cup of Aqvavit! Nirvana fans should worship this , no doubt. 3 razor blades
