3 stars After 3 albums in which Senmuth was exploring the ways to make a fusion between Industrial and ethnic, inspired to India, Middle East and Far East he is back to the origins.

"No More Sense" appears to be unstructured respect to the previous three albums, even if some links to ethnic music are still present. The sound similar to a bouzuki in the second track, "Utrativ Svet" has that flavour. In the less chaotic parts it may be a metal version of a Yanni's song. When Senmuth doesn't sing, of course.

I continue to see an improvement in the melodies respect to his debut. When noise and obsessive percussions are down he can be very melodic.

What I don't like in this album are the sudden changes. All the tracks are disconnected one from each other. Not that the others were concept albums, at least I'm not able to appreciate if they were as I don't understand either in what language he sings. Likely Russian and sometimes English, maybe.

But there are also very interesting tracks like the screamed "Saw". I don't know if there's any relationship with the omonimous horror movie, but screams and some words that I'm able to catch seem to confirm. Another good track is "Otvetov Net". Each time Senmuth gives up to the industrial noise he shows all his songwriting skills. Also the passage to the following track is not so sudden and disconnected.

The last highlights are Diamond Road, that's also the longest track of the album and Obratni Process (new). The first with some middle East flavour, the second quite close to disco.

Not the best Senmuth ever, but not bad.
