5 stars what a masterpiece. these are the only words I find to describe Promised land. On of my favourite albums ever. It is completely dominated by an incredibly bleak mood. It's like shifting sands, once you enter it you have no escape. Here Geoff is probably at his best, as all the band around him. The courage of this group is hidden among the notes of this album: after Empire their label asked them to make another "commercial" album. And so they came out with a may-be-concept so gloomy and hard to listen to that was probably the most different thing from a commercial album possible. Pieces like "I am I", "Damaged", Out of mind" the absolutely incredible title-track (an opera, a masterpiece of obscurity and disease), "one more time" are among the best things ever written by the 'ryche. And over all this you find the conclusion, left to a "Someone else" that will leave you crying on the floor wondering if you are still alive or if you had really ever lived..... What a masterpiece...
