4 stars This is the 2nd album by the young US outfit, featuring as lead vocalist the beautiful Leslie Hunt. After a stunning debut album, they're back with a second opus presenting quite a few changes; the cello is nearly gone (only appearing on one track), the metal edge gains a stronger presence, resulting maybe in a slightly squarer drumming; it seems the complexity of the tunes is a bit faded, giving place to a more calculated balance between complexity and accessibility; but don't worry, they're not (yet) selling out and there are plenty of gorgeous melodies with acrobatical interval springs, bewitched synth solos, burning guitars and many rhythmic twists; finally, legendary singer John Wetton is appearing on one track with great lyrics, in duo with Leslie. The first 2000 copies will include a free full-length bonus DVD, District 97-Live at Rites of Spring. Don't wait too long!
