3 stars Ahh where to begin with this one

for starters i thought this was a much weaker effort than lover, the lord has left us

while i thas a few good songs in my opinion its a rather weak album espially after teh improvment they showed on lover the lord has left us

lets evaluate the tracks shall we

1.)Intro just a filler track in my opinion it has no purpose other than to add slightly more texture to the album overall a very weak track

2.)Ocean & The Sun

my favourite track on the whole album this is what i expected of TSOAF when i went to get this album it is a greact track with slighty distorted vocals and great ambient noises thoughout. a great track

3.)I,The Swan

another great track this was the song that made me think i had another great album on my hands

4-6) these 3 tracks made me change that thought very quickly though while they had some good parts i didn't enjoy them and they seemed to drag on and on while i listened to them not very strong effort

7)the heraldic beak of the manufacturer's medallion

a song that made me get my hopes up again with a great gutiar begining this track is excellent from all point of view it soon breaks into a screamoesque verse though but still sounds great. a bit difficult to understand teh lyrics though. it then slows down a bit (maybe 10bpm) and becomes an amzing track with great ad-libbing with acoustic gutiar backing. then back into the verse the song then proceeds with a awesome instrumental break. then breaks back into the verse and just sounds AMAZING. it remidns me of why i love prog rock

8-9) after song 7 tracks 8 and 9 disapoint chinese new year is some children chanting? and ubekistan reminds me of why progressive rock became unpopular with huge excesses that really shouldn't be there and make the song much weaker then what it could of been

10-11) they weren't that bad actually the last 3 songs on this album may have just saved it from me giving it a 2 star rating

12.) On the ocassion of wet snow

i do enjoy slower songs and this track is no excpetion its just a beatiful way to end of the album and is what unltimatly saves this albu mfro mbein ga failure in my opinion

overall a solid 3 star rating from me i expect better from such a talented band
