Prog Reviewer
3 stars Maybe it's the lack of David Jackson, or maybe the guys needed to spend just a little longer refining material - either way, Trisector is lacking something. It's not that the songs on here are bad - far from it - but all too often, they feel just a little sparse, and sparse in a "this isn't really finished" way as opposed to a "this is deliberately minimalistic" way. Segments of songs chug along in a similar vein without variance for just a little too long here and there, and in general the overall impression is of a first draft of what might be a really good album given a little more work and polish. Still, Hammill's lyrics and the band's songwriting are a little sharper on here than on Present.
