5 stars a great trip!

Anubis Australians have released an album concept of high quality. if given a chance, it could be in many peoples collection. It is a concept album based around the sad death of a boy who goes on a journey to search for himself. the history of his life is played out before him and he sees another way he could have traveled, an "Operation Mindcrime" type scenario with an evil doctor that is abusing him and makes him a junkie. The story ends with his death.

Musically, it is sometimes charming and sometimes deliberately ugly. It is a strength that each chapter of story strikes the listener hard. if your taste, you'll find memorable. the voice is the inner monologue of a young boy. it is also by turns melancholy and anger by the excellent voice of lead singer Robert James Mouling as he play the role successfully. the real beauty of this album are the last two songs, 12 minutes 'collapse' and almost 20 minutes 'disinfected and abuse'. this song is in itself a great achievement and demonstrates the good harmonies progressive rhythm and melodies that truly turn the soul and scratches on his face.

this is a masterpiece and it makes a very good album an excellent album. it is a benchmark set, then the future is very exciting to anubis.

4.5 really, but the last song is a masterpiece

AlexVigne | 5/5 |
