From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars I was foolish enough to buy this album because of some of the review on this site (not going to do that again!). This is a decent work--it's certainly much better than anything you'll hear on the radio--but it's mostly a weak cross between Porcupine Tree and Radiohead. The songs are very short (minus the last two tracks) as in under five minutes. Before I got into prog, I was able to listen short songs like these and like them, but I've spoiled by all the musical goodness of many other artists who will write (and finish!) whole songs. Whenever I listen to this band, I like their sound and their energy (it's mildly interesting), but they won't [i]finish[/i] a song to save their life. An intro, bridge, chorus, bridge, chorus, outro is lacking and is just plain boring. Just because you throw in some voice effects and electronic influences doesn't your music progressive and certainly doesn't make it worth fifteen dollars. Porcupine Tree can write a shorter song and make it brilliant. Radiohead has it's moments. This is just boring, lacks motivation or direction. Fans-only.
