4 stars I was very impressed with Miliontown, so I looked forward to this release. I can say that I like Milliontown a bit more, simply because some of the "sounds" that define Frost* were unveiled in that release, and reprised in this one. It's all part of a group finding its own musical identity, and it isn't a negative - it's how we gain instant recognition that says, "Hey, that's Frost*". That said, I like the storytelling in this release, and while Milliontown has more of a progressive instrumental explosion to it, Mass Appeal caters more to the telling of the tale.

Rarely do you find a second release that will match a great debut, so I rather expected to lower my expectations when first listening to Mass Appeal. But, in the end, I have happily accepted that the two releases are different, and that I can listen to them with equal pleasure. I hope that Frost* continues, this release is a gem, and the more I listen to it, the more my senses embrace it. If you already have Milliontown and enjoy it, as I do, then you must certainly add Mass Appeal to your collection. At this point, as long as Frost* continues to create and play inspired music, they are going to gain a multitude of followers and fans.
