2 stars Bought this on ebay following the seller's review, but if I had the chance to preview this album, it woud've never reached my CD rack.

First of all, the singer voice is absolutely annoying, he strains his vocal cords trying to inject some feeling on the words he says; at first, you wonder what Cross is trying to do with the songs, later you realize that he has no idea for any interesting melody so he stretch the vocals for the lenght of the songs, more or less following the often unnecessarily complex rhythms.

The playing is at least good, with particular mention to keys and guitar work, but the production is at times too over the top and pomp-y, especially when the synths are on in full mode.

If only they had good material they could go instrumental, but this is not the case...
