4 stars An interesting, varied and pretty eclectic this sophomore effort from US act Fractal.

And there's a lot of fragmentation on hand on this one - the influences of one Robert Fripp is a pretty constant feature, and although rarely as complex as King Crimson there's quite a few dissonant multilayered melodies served. In a toned down and accessible manner most times admittedly. The angst-filled explorations of Radiohead are known to these guys, and elements of their productions find their way into this mix as well; alongside mellow space-tinged atmospheres with a nod to late 70's Pink Floyd. A blues number and a punk-tinged creation with Frippian under- and overtones is the icing on the cake; while the techno and Tangerine Dream inspired tune Bellerophon provides a surprising end to this journey.

This disc covers many musical bases, and not all of them as good as others. Most of the stuff here is of good quality though; and people with a wide taste in music and an interest in advanced but not highly complicated rock should probably find much to enjoy on this one.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
