2 stars Carlos Guirao's departure was a big loss for NEURONIUM. The band moved away from hypnotic 70s' influenced sequences to 80s' more or less inspired new-age / ambient music.

"Secret Audience" is a slow, delicate melancholic opening with absolutely no rythms. It certainly shares reminiscences with the style of their first albums. On the opposite, "Reprisal" shows NEURONIUM entering the next decade... but not the good way. Overall this track sounds very dated: it features many 80s' synth clichés and the guitar part does not bring anything. The short energic tune "Torquemada", with small guitar passages, is surprisingly quite enjoyable. The record finishes with the ambient "Lethal Dose". I find this composition a bit flat and less inspired than their previous works of the same type.

"Heritage" has a few interesting moments, unfortunately the long pieces fail at keeping interest.

Modrigue | 2/5 |
