4 stars progmonster, I can't agree less with you. And in general, what a unloved son this Gravity bastard is. Hardly received by fans and blamed by others, from their albums, if they're rated all quite well, one simply have to be worst. And so here we are, evaluating, judging, thinking about qualities, prog qualities and quantities (tities?) of Gravity trap. Isn't it nice to be trapped again ? Seems like good young Marty (it's opposite of "good ol' Marty", who I'll become in future - 2015).

I'll rather advice to something else (not talking to anything in particular, just responding to so "low" [relatively] rating that reigns here. I don't stand a chance to change it and I also don't want to), face the fact that this is different Anekdoten. If you compare slightly worse album (Nursery Crime) with Masterpiece (Foxtrot), the result is - easily 4-stars. But when you compare it to other, 4- star albums, the result it 5-stars. What about to apply same fair policy here. Be honest, be fair with Anekdoten, they does not deserve our wrath. Or sour grapes.

I'll also fact (or you, as you wish, if you'll follow me), am aware that this sounds weaker. Not completely bad, but weaker for sure. Structures too depending on vocals (which were good in small dosages) and somehow more pop feeling here. More melodic, something that does not fits me here. You see ? I'm thinking in terms of their music, comparing this album to others, but when comparing to other work of other acts, would it be better ? A little bit, yes. As long as I know, their most melodic album by far.

But it's nice to look at other reviews and see, how confused some reviewers are, not knowing what to say. At least I'm not alone in this.

4(-), but I've been tempted by darkness to give less. I'll leave it for a next time.
