2 stars The debut album from Little Tragedies, I presume. Or maybe that was The Cross. I am too lazy this morning to find the answer. Anyway, this album show some promise. But it still falls short of expectations.

The music is synths and even more synths. It is also symphonic prog with a large degree of avant-garde music too. It also have a large degree of Russian folk music in it too. What this have to do with the tragic demise of Titanic in 1912, I do not know. But the Titanic tragedy moved a lot of other nations than those directly involved too so a Russian doing a Titanic tribute is actually perfectly normal...... and honorable.

Most parts of this album most certainly feels like a funeral dirge. There is even a Russian traditional hymn here, sung in Russian. Which gives this album more style. Unfortunate, the avant-garde nodding destroys what could had been a good album. I am normally a fan of avant-garde music. But in this case, the avant-garde musings here is totally missing the boat. It feels like a bad excuse to rack up the minutes. There is some good music here. But not enough to call this a good album. I give it two stars, bordering to three stars.

2.75 stars
