3 stars The so far most recent Minas Tirith album introduced some sanity inbetween insanity.

For those of you who does not know this band, it is fair to say that Minas Tirith is probably the strangest band to ever have been spawned from Norway. Their music is a mix of some zeuhl, Radiohead like rock, general disharmonies, disharmonic atonal vocals, pop, metal and art rock. Their musical landscape is populated by noone other than themselves. Hence, their popularity among fellow musicians, but no commercial success whatsoever.

Their music is still very much as on their previous albums, but some more normal rhythm patterns and melody lines aka Rush has been introduced. Frode Forsmo's atonal vocals is still the main focus here. They are supported by some guitar, bass and drums. The lack of any really great tracks is the main problem with this album. I also feel their mission had run their cause on this album and the decay has set in. It is still a good album, but it is not a revolution. A good album it is, but nothing more than that.
