5 stars This album needs many spins before you have a right picture about it. I've listened it about 40 times and i must say that this is P tree's best album to date.

While reading other reviews around the web, I noticed that people misunderstand the lyrics. Lyrics aren't about a whole generation it's just a story of a one person. I admit that i made the same mistake when hearing this album first time. Of course you can interpret the lyrics anyway you want, but most of people have put words in to Steven's mouth. Steven said on an interview that he isn't as pessimist as you could imagine based on lyrics.

Anyhow, everybody have understood the music properly - those who don't like PT won't like this album either. But those who like PT's first albums will like this album. It's weird and I have noticed this when reading customers reviews around the web.

Time will tell will this semi-masterpiece be as timeless as In Absentia is. In the meantime, I'll have it another spin.
