Smegcake!
4 stars This is the second longest opening track on an album I've come across, and I must admit, it's where all the action is. It's sprawling, entertaining and very progressive. I enjoy about 35 minutes of the 44 though. Another Day has places in its middle section which really don't do much except squeal and groan, but its placed in between such wonderfully catchy and energetic musical pieces that you can't help but slap your head in frustration that it drags down the album quality that little bit to stop it being perfect by having these additional chunks. And being the mighty length of 44 minutes does make it hard to simply skip when you reach the less wonderful parts.

But make no mistake, this is good music. Even the attempt to make a song of 44 minutes consistently entertaining the whole way through deserves some praise - and that they managed to pull it off pretty well; really shows the talent we're talking about here. And if you look at Christian Vander's earlier work, there's certainly a lot of it. And it shows in the title track. The other two closing pieces don't stand up to the 44 minute Another Day, but they are still nice small additions.

Highly recommended, if you can find it.
