2 stars I'm disappointed with this one. Zumanthum had at least one terrific track, 'From Beginning to End' (or something like that), which also was the longest track (20 minutes), plus one quite nice instrumental piece. The majority of Zumanthum either wasn't very much up to my taste but still it pleased me clearly more. Not that their style would have changed much. Energetic, dramatic Neo-Prog played very skillfully, and some flute here and there which I like.

But this time the vocals seem to be a bigger problem for me. Now they make me think of some hard-rock band of the eighties wearing black tight leather trousers and having that 80's hairstyle... Maybe also the playing is a bit edgier, harder, this time. Several tracks start promisingly (for example the acoustic guitar intro on one song is good) but at some point they take a turn I don't enjoy at all. So actually the only track I enjoyed completely was the brief calm instrumental 'The Sun', even though there are other enjoyable moments - they're just marred by the later parts of the same tracks. Sorry guys but no more than two stars from me, despite of good playing and clean production.

If you like bands such as DREAM THEATER, which I believe is one of their influences among Pink Floyd or Genesis, check out this Finnish group (of relative young musicians? - so they seem from their looks at least).
