3 stars SINISTER STREET are from The Netherlands and this was the last album they recorded back in 2002. For me they sounded a lot like EVERON just not as heavy or as good. The lyrics and vocals did bring that German band to mind on several occassions. I was surprised to find out that there are two keyboardists on this album as the keys didn't dominate the sound very often.

"Song For A Day" has a good heavy intro that changes when the vocals arrive. It picks back up as the tempo continues to change. I like the atmosphere before 7 minutes to the end. "Thin Ice" is heavy with synths. Vocals join in. Guitar after a minute and a fuller sound. Contrasts continue. "Lost For Words" opens with atmosphere as vocals join in followed by drums and guitar. The tempo continues to shift. I'm thinking EVERON here. "Trust" is an instrumental that opens heavily with some nice bass. The guitar starts to solo after 2 minutes. Great sound 4 1/2 minutes in.

"Two In One" opens with fragile vocals and organ. The tempo picks up with strummed guitar, bass and vocals standing out. "Midas Touch" has a nice full sound to it then it kicks in quickly with vocals. It settles back some then gets fuller again. "Go The Distance" is uptempo to start as passionate vocals join in. Guitar before 3 minutes, organ too. "Turning Tide" opens with gentle guitar as reserved vocals join in. Drums follow as it picks up. It's heavier 2 minutes in. The tempo keeps shifting. Nice guitar later. "Through The Looking Glass" is heavy with organ and vocals. Again it settles as contrasts continue.

A good album and nothing more. 3 stars.
