2 stars A bit of a standstill.

A lackluster performance by an otherwise very talented group. This is one of my least favorite Mekong Delta releases, with few engaging tracks (only the Twilight Zone cover is enjoyable) and lacking in much of the classical textures that distinguish this band from being a mere thrash output. The original tracks are fairly tepid, and really fail to get going from the start.

At this point in their career, Mekong Delta had already shown affections towards classical based compositions, so I am somewhat at a loss at the lack of influences found here in that regard. Most of it sounds like second-rate Megadeth, and really fails to show how the band can and has shined. Twilight Zone is the only real solace, an excellent cover that is just as haunting, if not more so, than the original.

Check out other Mekong Delta albums to get a better idea about what this band is about. Not as poor as Kaleidescope, but still not up to par. A small blemish on an otherwise great career.
