3 stars I don't write a lot of reviews, but wanted to say some things about this album. I've come later to The Tangent and have mixed feelings about them and this album in particular. I've had it now for many months and given it a bunch of listens and still come to the same conclusion. Musically, I think this is an excellent album, well crafted songs with very interesting arrangements, themes, and structure, The concept of the album is also very interesting. The musicianship is excellent and the production spot on. The big problem I have with this album is the vocals. I find them a big put-off. Andy Tillison is not a good singer in my opinion and his weakness brings the whole album down a notch. There are clear points throughout the disk where he is simply off-key. Even when he is on key the quality of his voice just doesn't do it for me. It's unfortunate because aside from this it is a terrific recording. Musically this is a four star effort, but because of the vocals I can only give it a 3.
