Endless Wire
3 stars With just about all of the DT releases in my music collection, I can safely say that this is one of my least favorites. Granted, there are some really good songs on here. 6:00, Innocence Faded, and Erotomania are some classic songs but others just can't seem to hold my interest. Scarred and Voices, which should be the strongest tracks just don't seem to have that much melody. Songs like The Mirror with that terrible down-tuned chord over and over again just isn't as good as, say Metropolis or Lie. I just can't really get into this album like I can some of their other ones. Enough good songs on here to justify purchasing it, but it's just not consistant all the way through. I recommend Images and Words, or for those who like heavier stuff Systematic Chaos.
Endless Wire | 3/5 |
