3 stars This second outing from Abigail's Ghost sees the band seeking to strike out in a direction perhaps a little more their own, rather than following so strongly in the footsteps of heavy-prog giants Porcupine Tree. It's a less progressive direction though, as others have mentioned it draws on more elements of more mainstream alt-rock.

The first track gives a statement of intent that this is a heavier release too - shades of prog metal creep in, though again the sound still feels a little anchored in the realms of porcupine tree - this track wouldn't feel wholly out of place alongside the heavier moments on Fear Of A Blank Planet, released the same year. In the second, however, they find a mellower alt-rock groove, a feel that continues through large chunks of the album.

Overall, I like this less than Selling Insincerity, but it's still a worthwhile listen.

3/5
