1 stars This is the worst Spock's Beard album by a long shot, in my book. One song--ONE SONG--on the entire album struck my interest at all. The rest are simply standard compositions (and I'm not even saying mere pop, just absolutely uninteresting songwriting). The Planet's Hum is a rather neat song, but I was fooled by the epic suite of the first seven songs into thinking that the music will be going places on here. It doesn't. It merely panders around while the band searches for a sound that is completely separate from the Morse-ness that still pervaded Feel Euphoria. Trust me, any album before this and the self titled after it are far more entertaining, lasting, and listenable.

It gets a single star, and while I feel kind of heartless rating it that way, I have to point out that as far as 2008, this is the band's lowest point in terms of every sort of musicality ever.
