4 stars I quite enjoyed The Tangentīs last two efforts. This one is even better. Great musicianship, feel and variety. Slightly more agressive than ever before, which for me is a plus. This time Andy takes lead guitar duties and the results are quite satisfactory. But why OH WHY does he insist on singing all the lead vocals??? Itīs painfully clear the songs would gain depth and emotion with a better singer. Tillison sings reasonably well but he IS NOT a singer for chrissake! His former bandmate in The Tangent, Roine Stolt, at least has the intelligence to share lead vocals with more proficient singers. As far as the songs are concerned, theres the obligatory epic, clocking at 19 minutes, two expansive 10 minute plus tracks and three more compact pieces. Thereīs a slightly more experimental feel about this album but i feel itīs also a less hurried affair with mature, cohesive and emotional songwriting. Listen to it! Well worth your time.
