2 stars I have to add my voice to those of the few people who don't seem to get the greatness of this group. They obviously play well, and sure, there are lot of vintage keyboard sounds, and the compositions are "complex", but having listened to the album a couple of times, nothing is sticking out as particularly impressive at all. I don't see how it's better than anything the underrated (and under-reviewed) Djam Karet, the more melodic Anekdoten, or the more aggressive Guapo have done. People say there are strong melodies on this album, but I can't hear 'em. The production is also lacking, sounding very early 90s low budget. The whole record seems more of an excuse to show how virtuosically proggy the band could be. I guess we can't all like everything- the Wobbler album everyone's going crazy about had the same effect on me. Definitely worth hearing, since everyone likes it so much, but I don't think it's the classic it's made out to be.
