4 stars OK, let's try this game. It's even more insane than their previous one. And it's insane that I love it even more. Maybe songs better suited for this twisting, shifting of everything and so on. Another load of cover songs, but this time, it works slightly better. Just little bit, but measurable bit. I like the way where current German production is heading, with Martigan's new album, Sylvan's work, Lacrimosa, it's getting better every year.

There's sung part on Mein Teil (my tail?) is better than original, but don't have so much jazzy parts (which can sounds almost surreal at times). Also, I think that calmer (not loud, not metal) songs are better than their opposites. This band simply have advantage in jazz parts, it's what they can do the best. But when it's blend of all three elements, it's something like symphony. Only from other side of spectrum, from the crazy side (the Breeze)

4(-), better handled covers than previous one. Leaning almost to masterpiece heights, from which some covers are persuading me not to give full rating. And there's another thing. Death metal thing doesn't really fits here for me (Weary Eyes. This also brings it down. But of course, many things lifts this up. Overall, it's better than his previous brother from 2008, but not as much to give (+)
