3 stars Kingbathmat is a surprise.. sometimes I like it, sometimes I hate it... Why? Simply, the album does not fit any known category at all. The progressive moments are really different, sometimes strange, magic, but then we have some annoying 'Neo Pop Rock' like passages mixed with some good ones. I have to say almost half to half. If the 50% excellent was distributed to fill the album, 'Fantastic Freak...' could receive five stars, but these pop moments are there. Another surprise.. each time I listen to this album I like it more or like it less. This is unique for my ears, an album I can not review as good or as annoying, but this is also a nice characteristic of 'Fantastic Freak...' So, if you like surprises and can handle some seconds of bad pop rock, you will like 'Fantastic Freak...' a lot. Three stars for me is enough...
