2 stars The low amount of stars that I give this CD is a result of real hard effort to like it, but I just can't. It drives me mad!! It just goes on and on and on and on for eternity in this massive and hypnotic rattling way. Not that there aren't beautyful parts on the album, but when stretching these out till ages I'm starting to lose all interst. Time after time. All respect to the band though, because this album (and their others as well) is for sure nothing that they come up with easily. I can picture the hard work behind this music. Even if I see qualities in this, it seems to me that the "progressiveness" would benefit if the band would move on from here and not fall in love with their own thing at this stage. Things are starting to settle in this "genre", it's time to develop this that they and others have created.
