2 stars I had bought every Tangent release prior to this, so naturally bought a copy without listening beforehand (as I do with practically all my purchases). I knew that Roine Stolt was missing but still had high hopes. What a disappointment it proved to be. The music had lost it's previous coherence and direction but was still, in the main, quite listenable. You guessed it - there's a big "but" coming. There have been many musically gifted prog bands who have been let down by weak vocals (Mostly Autumn and Pendragon come immediately to mind), but Andy Tillison seems to take the plaudits here. If he ever hits a note it is either due to luck or the law of averages kicking in! Why is it that principal band members often insist on taking up the lead vocalist's role when they are not up to the task? Can they not hear themselves or are they so vain? I don't expect things to change by the time of the next release but why should they - it's only one fan's opinion. Anyway, that's the last Tangent purchase I shall make without prior listening. Please don't respond to this post saying I am talking rot - it's just my personal taste - some, I'm sure, will not mind the voice.
