3 stars OK such "Modern Art Rock genre" is well represented by D.K. and much better than King Crimson nowadays!!Probably this good album is worth a 3 stars and an half score at least, because the hypnotic rhythms (for instance "Swimming in the big sky" is a typical example) and their clever arrangement of the melodic lines- created by the pretty acoustic guitars- are an interesting blend of good ideas of their own ("The hanging tree" is another confirmation) fact-as usual for this fertile band- you can find also a mix of electronic music, psychedelia and ambient music, seldom boring and often creative and original too. I think of the majority of their stuff, being more interesting in comparison for example to the material by Ozric Tentacles (the tunes by these latter are repetitive in several circumstances!!) or to the recent tiring albums by King Crimson as well, and D.K. are always a pleasant surprise...well actually the present album is not their best one and I prefer another kind of progressive music;however their approach is often simple and stunning in the same time, and for me that's enough to make this "Ascension New Dark Age Vol. 2" an interesting album in the average, to be checked out at least!

A US ensemble with a strong personality they are, anyway!
