3 stars Ok, I admit, this one is not really accessible for the casual listener and it took me spin after spin to get into the strange musical maelstrom this album is. But there is a very comfortable comparison at hand: If you know PART OF THE MACHINE from FATES WARNING's PERFECT SYMMETRY album, you know what you'll get musically. Sieges Even's album is like a 55 minute version of that song. But the singing - sorry, my fault - the howling and screeching of Franz Herde is absolutely no match for Ray Alder. The instrumentalists' musicianship is excellent and very controlled, the writing is so sophisticated that the music simply can't be memorised by the listener except for a few phrases. This album contains very good music but it is rather a strain to listen to it. Therefore only 3 stars.
