From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I've heard all recording projects of this group, except The Void. Sleeping in Traffic: Part I and Part II are the best and most progressive. Moreover, almost no tracks or sections contain fillers. They are more even, and with outstanding compositions.

Regarding Part Two: The guitars are inspired and make a good relationship with keyboards. The bass guitar is very rhythmic and protagonist, like drums. This is clearly seen in the instrumental Cashflow, to give an example.

The centerpiece is varied and entertaining, with great musicianship, remarkable. The vocal and lyrical of Sj÷blom (Gungfly) are great, especially in this part.

Into the Night and The Downward Spiral are very good, too. South of the Border is not to my taste I do not find the meaning, and the whole album has a definite retro spirit. Fifteen minutes less would have been better.

Not reached the status of masterpiece, but it is a comprehensive work more than acceptable to my ears.

Unfortunately, after the group was inclined to a more direct sound and more heavy, with a lyrical more insulting. Not my cup of tea.

sinslice | 4/5 |
