Prog Reviewer
1 stars I'm a huge fan of electronic and ambient music, so the idea of an album being filled entirely with soundscapes isn't a problem for me at all. I hardly ever pull this album out, and now I remember why.

1. Dead Flag Blues- Boring. The freaking song takes forever to build up. The vocals are disturbing. I can appreciate what they're trying to paint here, but it's REALLY not my thing. Maybe I'll listen to it once every couple years out of curiosity, but... I've tried listening to this more than a few times but it doesn't do much for me. 2/10

2. East Hastings- Man, this one's even worse! This is way too uneventful for my tastes. The drums are... bad. The instruments themselves aren't bad; everything simply takes way too much time to develop. And does it really go anywhere? Doesn't seem like it to me and this hardly keeps my attention. Do NOT listen to this expecting to concentrate fully on it. 1/10

3. Providence- How could this delve even more into bland songwriting? This is definitely the worst track. The song doesn't get any better at developing ideas and some just come across as annoying, particularly the vocal part about 11 and a half minutes through. I mean, what is that? This is so uninteresting for me. 0/10

I still plan on keeping this album in my collection simply because I hate the idea of getting rid of an album that I've taken the time to hear and collect. The parts where they randomly interview people are tedious and ineffective.

Pass on this unless you want to hear the musical representation of a coma.
