I've to admit I even did not like their highly acclaimed first release, simply because I found it only unique but not enjoyable to listen, mainly because of the shrill female vocals that are causing a pain in my ears. On this one here they are even more obvious and moreover most of the album is sounding terribly commercial. Only "Children of the Universe " is quite a good song on which even the vocals sound nicely. IMHO this band is not really interesting and worth checking out, their only two releases are of an extreme contrast to each other. The first one being too strange and not enjoyable, still bearing some hopes for something better to come. But obviously this did not happen, instead the band went towards a more commercial direction which was a "cul-de-sac" for them as well.

Finally I've to say that this album is even not worth for completing their short discography because even the ones who loved their debut will be terribly disappointed. If you don't mind shrill vocals and you're satisfied with 1 or 2 fairly good songs on an album you might check it out. It has a few not so bad moments, but for me this is not enough to call it a good one. 1 1/2 star at the maximum!!
