4 stars John 11:43: 'After he said those things, he shouted mightly: 'Lazarus, come outside!'

A shrewd blend of grace under pressure. This album could upset people due to the high and disturbing level of heavyness in some points. The same pattern's been used in In Absentia but with the VU meter in the red for a longer time.

Who cares if it's not as Pink Floydesque as before? Maybe they refined their style a bit more. Anyway, the contribution by a member of Opeth should give you the idea of the jagged, powerful and armaggedonesque style it could give.

As for the high points, one has to be underlined with a marker: Lazarus. A great melody, hypnotic piano line and charming Teenage Fanclub/ Treble Charger vocals. Coldplay, Radiohead, Travis and Doves, britannia is aiming on the softer and melodic style these years. Porcupine Tree's trying in the vein, but only better.

Prog purists will spit on thid considering the relatively high FM material it contains. For others who'd like to spend a good time in the company of UK's highest hopes, grab it when you see it. The kind of album you cannot feel ashamed of playing in front of chicks.

'Come to us, Lazarus...it's time for you to go."
