4 stars This is a sad but beautiful album. Lyrically, it is a quest for nowhere, a search for a summits that they no longer believe in. The ubermench is caught as a victim of his own solitude, the enlightement though disapear slowly, leaving room for the appaerance of Postmodernisn and his well know Schyzophrenia. The music, in analogy with the lyrics, is fragmented, borowing from diverse influences, using well know chord changes. For instance, "Searching" starts the album with a very well known chord pattern : III-V . If the openig chords of the album recall in the mind of the active listener memories of other songs ( Cf Breath by Pink Floyd, among others), it is in the mystery of the chords sequence of " A land to Live" that best fits with the visual imagery conveyed by the lyrics. Obscure, sad and yet beautiful these are the barebone of the mystery, the mystery of the man contempling his own solitude in the contemporary theater.
