3 stars A very impressive album indeed. I have listened to this many times to be sure of my opinion. This is a very difficult album to listen to. On one side itīs fairly melodic and suddenly disharmonic tones and strange time signatures kick in. Pretty confusing I must say and I must say that it destroys my listening pleasure somewhat.

Itīs simply a little too avant garde for me, and I feel left out of the club sometimes. I have to praise the musicians playing here though as they are outstanding. The compositions are very clever and the melody lines are very original. The two singers both the male and the female command respect.

I would like to give this 4 stars for the outstanding musicianship showcased here, but I sometimes feel the music is weird for weirdness sake and that is a minus in my book. Iīm sure if they tuned the weirdness down a bit, they could make beautiful music. If you like your music weird but at the same time pretty listenable this would qualify.

UMUR | 3/5 |
