4 stars Great album. Their first album Touch Wood was a good one, with some great tracks. This new one is much better. Great keyboards, great guitarwork. Straigt drumming and bass-work. The album consists of four long tracks and tells us about someone searching for and struggling to find the reason of his excistence. It's not a great story, bus the good thing is it gives us a consistent album that rocks, dramatic synths, but also quiet and melancholic (Genesis) moments. Listen tot the mid-section of Must be Another Way with nice spanish guitar. The vocals are much better than on their first album, with drummer Joost Hagemeijer singing over a third of the lyrics. Nice harmonics! Must be Another Way and Hidden Dreams are competing for best song. Last but not least: great artwork! This will definitely be in my personal top-10 list of 2005! Keep rocking, Mangrove.
