3 stars This was a much anticipated release for me. I truly have enjoyed the previous Adagio releases and the addition of Gus Monsanto to replace David Readman is most note worthy and worth the wait. Super voice Gus! However, I was quite surprised (taken back actually) at the departure from their earlier releases with the introduction of the growling vocals (euphemistically referred to as "cookie monster singing" in my book). I found this release a bit darker (heavier) than previous releases and I would have given it a 4.0 or even higher rating if it wasn't for this distraction. I find it difficult to hear the music over the "noise" of the growling and there is some serious talent hidden behind there! I will still add this release to my internet radio stream with hopes of peronally adjusting to the cookies (this will be a big challenge I'm afraid). They say there is some art if in every form of music -- I just hope I can get past the cookies for now and see it that way. The album still PROX though, it's not just about cookies. progman55 ->
