1 stars I have decided to write the review of this album after I saw that it is the highest rated album of Fantomas. I must say that I don't agree with so high rating of this album. As some of other reviewers mentioned earlier Fantomas is not exactly a music. I must say that I really enjoy their second album Directors Cut which is an interesting and unusual example of prog rock. I even liked the album Delirium Cordia, maybe not as a music but as a collection of strange and sometimes interesting sounds. As for the Suspended Animation album. Maybe it is something new but new doesn't always means good. For me it is not a music, and even not interesting sounds. Most of the album is just a noise. Terrible noise. I think that even most fans of metal will not like these sound. There are 30 very short tracks (mostly no longer that 1,30 minute) on this album with mix of screams, crazy guitar, fast drums and cartoon sounds. I am listening to very unusual music including Magma, free jazz, krautrock and many other unusual things, but I must say that I don't agree with the opinions that Suspended Animation is something unique, original and deserves a 5 star rating (masterpiece of progressive rock music). For me it is something between 1 and 2 stars.
