3 stars The latest album from this Iranian band.

I interviewed this band sometimes ago. Nice band which knows what they are doing. This critially acclaimed album very much confirms that this band both have a vision and the means to carry it out.

Style wise, this album comes across as a more lively version of Norway's very own Gazpacho. The trademark Gazpacho sound and the Radiohead vocals are also present on this album. Music wise, this album is far more varied and multi-faced, even more multi-cultural than any Gazpacho album. You get both jazz, metal, dubstep and folk music in this album and that in generous helpings. This makes this album a very interesting album.

I am though really missing one or two real killer tracks which could had elevated this album to a higher level and glued my ears to my stereo rack speakers. But Ahoora has laid down a solid groundwork with this album, their first album in their more progressive vein. I sincerely hope they continue down the same path on a hopefully new album soon. This album should be checked out.

3.5 stars
