Rob The Plant
5 stars Opening with a very Bowie-like number, and moving into many diverse types of songs. One could not easily get bored with this album, not to mention the depth lyrically, as well as musically. A surprisingly dark undertone rides throughout this album, occasionally coming to the surface boldly on songs such as "Bitter Sweet", a moody track, which opens mellow, and rises into melancholy vocal work, which then exlodes in a Krimson, and shocking voice, sung in German, and reinforced with great instrumental work, easily the best tune ion the album.

I would reccomend this album to any Bowie fan into Prog. Certainly a gem for your collection, that you'll keep coming back to. I give this album 5 stars, because I see absolutely no marring flaw to it, and it should be bought by every prog fan, who has the chance. I can honestly say that I've never heard anything like this before.

Rob The Plant | 5/5 |
