3 stars A great album spoiled by some really annoying vocals.

I am listening to Ink Complete right now; being an excellent album one may ask himself (or rather, Ron Jarzombek, the real drive in the Spastic Ink project) why the hell are there vocals included. I'm not a fan of Watchtower for the same reason: awful vocals. It's clear that this guys know how to play, so it's a shame so much instrumental effort has gone to waste.

As you probably know from the other reviews, Spastic Ink is inadultered technical prog with more tempo shifts that you can possibly count. You won't find any nice melodies here but excellent skillful madness. It's certainly a great listen, but it will probably make your head hurt (not because it's bad, but because of the heavy, changing nature of the music).

Not all is lost by the vocals then, the instrumental part is still great. I just wouldn't recommend this over Ink Complete.

Hereby ends this reviews; more so than a review, a way to express my frustration on the inclusion of vocals. I will still give it 3 stars, making my best to be as objective as possible.
