4 stars Compared to the previous outstanding albums "Photos of ghost" and "World became the world", this record is a bit less good: the PFM'S peak is passed, but it still remains a very good album: it is very complex, loaded and it contains intense passages. The band changed the singer here: the new singer's voice is more nervous & brutal, and it may sound irritating for many people including myself. The bass is absolutely complex, fast and impossible to play. The drums are very elaborated and never dull. There is always an aggressive & distorted organ that seems saturated, giving some power to the ensemble. The violins are well played. The technical performance is absolutely outstanding. Sometimes I find the keyboards a bit too gross, lacking some refinement. Unfortunately, I think there are also less subtle mellow parts here than on the previous albums.
