2 stars Well at some stage I have to agree here with Curry69's review, and even go as far to say that this is MMEB's worst album to date. According to the MMEB's website, they dubbed this album as Solar Fire MK2. Well I can honestly say that's the biggest over statement, I have ever heard from any band. This album sucks compared to the likes of solar fire, and is not even based on the same music at all. All we have here is very wishy washy material in many cases, of the tracks that are here. The album starts of ok-ish to say with Joybringer, but is very short lived, as are a lot of the tracks on this album. There is nothing here of any great lengh, to do any justice to the album. The 2 Billy tracks 2 and 5 are just shear crap and a total waste of space. I get the feeling that this album was made with no real input put into it, but just to rush along, and get on the record shelves to sell and hopefully generate some cash. Track 10 of the album sums it up for me, with it's title Were Going Wrong. Which really says it all.
