1 stars Wow, this was a new experience to me... Sorry but I can't admire the great improvement in composition, because I haven't listened to any "Cloudkicker" albums until now.Although "Experimental" and "Metal" are a bit scary for me, the high place in this year's top made me courious.Also, as I liked "Anathema"'s and "Orpaned Lands" releases in the same category, I thought it's worth giving a try to "Cloudkicker", especially with the high praises reviews. I am always trying to broaden my tastes and discover new masterpieces. I am totally disapointed by this album, for me the music is too noisy, too repetitive, not melodic enough. No ofences meant to the fans of this music, but everyone is entitled to an opinion and "de gustibus...". I find this to be a "niche" music which can appeal only to a limited category of listeners, and so many "masterpiece' ratings in a "Prog" dedicated site can be deceiving. Because for me it is unlistenable and there is no "0" stars available, i will give it "*" for the effort.
