3 stars I'm one of the few dissenting voices here who says this new CD ain't all that. I saw them showcase it live a few weeks back and even then felt it strangely lacking substance. I dunno how old Stephen Wilson is now but I feel it may be a little too old to be singing songs about teenage angst. In his own words 'sound of music makes you wanna rage, but it's made by millionaires who're nearly twice your age'. I found the album samey and without much real depth. As a very enthusiastic fan and one who has been charmed by 'The Tree' for two years and bought pretty much the whole back catalogue. I was deeply dissapointed that this cd stayed in 'depressed' mode for, pretty much, it's entirity and lack the broadness of scope and colour offered by it's last 5 predecessors. It was all a bit too er.... teen metal for me. It should have been for the great Mr Wilson too.
