5 stars Not to be obvious, but my icon on this site is the album cover to Doomsday Afternoon. Nuff said. This is the best thing I have heard in the last 3 years. Along with Porcupine Tree and Dredg, Phideaux was one of the great discoveries I made thanks to this wonderful web site. And this album is the highlight of Phideaux's output with none others coming close. Highlights? "Microsoftdeathstar" and it's bookend "Microdeathsoftstar". But everything else in between is just as good. Lots of Pink Floydian ambience, great lyrics, stunning female vocals on many songs, rhythm and cadence changes, epic songs, great concept....THIS IS PROG! I hear, besides Floyd, Dredg, King Crimson, Alan Parsons, and others in this music. The motifs that are visited throughout this album can also be heard on other Phideaux release such as Number 7. Awesome! 5 stars.
