4 stars Aah, why this must be starting with track full of rapping (and some kind of hip-hop rhythm in between), eponymous Soup ? Except this (for me and I suppose that many others) flaw, it's fine mix of atmospheric/electronic sounds and guitar solos. Hands reminds me a little bit of King Crimson melodies together with Beardfish harmonies, of course, sounding often very different (similar to Steam by Peter Gabriel sometimes), but this is the best characteristic I can give. Inside the Red Pyramid explores Oriental melodies in quite clever way. Scarlet Wheel may sound like Pop song at first, but it's more in this song than that, it's way better. The Firebird Suite is spectacular, slowly moving towards big climax. Yep, I like the last part most.

4(+), solid four plus.
