3 stars I had high hopes for this album due to the great reviews that I've read about this particular release. I must have played this album at least 5-6 times before acknowledging that this just wasn't the type of music that I am capable of appreciating to its fullest.

Although the compositions have a great deal of ideas and skilled playing I tend to feel that this band is missing that little extra that would take them from the realm of an average Prog/Avant-garde band to become one of the best original acts out there. One possible reason for this is that I tend to prefer bands that put much greater effort in writing great compositions and are not necessarily the most skilled musicians out there i.e. Genesis, Pink Floyd, The Residents etc. I mean, there is just so much you can do with the instrumental work before the listener becomes tired of the same jam work shamelessly recycled on one track after the other.

Although I have no real objection to NEBELNEST's current direction non of these compositions are memorable enough to even make me remotely interested in exploring their future output which is really a pity. I'm sure that there are enough supporters of this type of music out there that can fill in the void left by my absence from the band's fan base.

**** star songs: BLaCKMaiL (9:35) ReDRuM (11:03) CiNeMa 1920 (5:00) NoVa eXPReSS (15:32)

*** star songs: STiMPy BaR (5:12)
