1 stars More or less is less than more!

First of all I have to declare that I don't have sympathy for acoustic albums of electric bands.

As second step I'd like to understand some things about acoustic albums: 1. Why the songs are often in a gravier tune than the original version? 2. Why the singer MUST adopt a mournful way of singing, even if the preceding version of the song was aggressive? 3. If the song is revisited why do often the musician maintain the same structure of the original version?

Apart of it let's start with L=M. 1. "The Space is destroyed. It is one of the fiew songs in this album where the structure has changed, but unfortunately in the worst way: 2. They crashed down the original pathos in "Hard as Love" with that unfortunate"Uh -Uh"; 3. "Quartz" has a fascinating intro and seems to me the best thing of this work; 4. The last track is sung in a very bad way (very strange for a grea singer like Hogarth) so it could be better identified as "MALUS TRACK" and not as bonus one

The rest is useless to describe. More or less are songs played as in a summer night around the fire.

No more than one single star
