3 stars Less neo-prog and more modern prog, [Redacted] takes Also Eden in a new direction. Fans of both neo-prog and more modern hard prog like Riverside or Haken may find a lot to enjoy, but those who prefer the old Also Eden will likely come away disappointed. Their first three albums were undeniably neo-prog; their fourth still has some of their old neo-prog sound, but they've [d]evolved. The vocals are pretty standard neo-prog and they clash with the rest of the music. The guitars are harsher and more modern. The music is more complex, harder, more unsettling, and busier than their earlier albums. Somehow, though, it's not any more interesting. "Extend and Embrace" is the best song on the album, and the most true to Also Eden's neo-prog roots.

It's perfectly fine listening, with neo-prog sounds shining through every once in a while, but it's not something I'll be returning to very often, if at all. I'll stick to their first three. 3.0 stars.
