3 stars Not as good as I they say.

I never really understood the all the hoop-la behind the Tangent; in my opinion not being far from the Flower Kings or Moon Safari, they are not as exciting as the last one. Okay, they are prolific. Okay, they play quite well. Okay, some segments really swings. But this is my first attempt at knowing the band better, and I frankly didn't heard anything new, sorry.

The Tangent is probably a band that a majority likes, but that I don't fancy. I sometimes wonder why I'm not into the recent super-bands like The Tangent, Transatlantic and such....I really wanted to be a fan, but I just find them too flat. I just the same recipe again and again: intro, organ, solo, speech, little keyboard solo, then guitar solo, then time changing, then repeat ad nauseum. I mean, it's been done SOOO many times these last 10 years! It's like Spock's Beard, but with 20 minutes songs! (include loud fading sigh here).

Good in general, but not fresh enough for me.

Not as good as I thought.
