4 stars A very strong album from the Israel prog group. It mixes a lot of different styles (progressive metal, folk, classic prog) and still has something unique. Lyrically the band covers many grounds, too: ecological disasters, craziness of today's world, some personal touch. It's evident that lyrics do matter here. It's good lyrics have a good doze of humor (otherwise things would be way too serious). Some may not like the female singing but for me it's completely OK. Noa Gruman has a very strong and versatile voice which she can adapt to almost all styles required - check videos on Youtube where she sings arias, blues and delivers metal growls. What is always important for me in music is how memorable it is. And here Soul Enema delivers again - after 2 listens I can recall almost all tunes (maybe except 3 pieces dedicated to Aral sea). The level of musicianship is top notch and still you never get the feeling they start showing off for virtuosity's sake. Highlights: Spymania, Cannibalismo Ltd, Octopus Song, Breaking the Waves. All in all, highly recommended. 4,5 stars. Surely of of the best releases of 2017.
