Second Life Syndrome
3 stars This album seemed to have quite a bit of promise, as I was looking forward to the mixture of symphonic prog, folk, and rock. However, I can't seem to get into this album at all. It's not that it is bad, it just isn't my cup of tea.

Right off the bat, the singer reminds me of the singer in the band Infictions. I don't believe they are one and the same, but I would be fooled. They sound almost identical. This also means that the vox have an indie rock spin to them. I'm not a huge fan of this, but it's okay. I also noticed the conspicuous lack of guitar through much of the album; but, when it arrives, it is standard indie fare. I'm not a huge fan of this either.

Yet, I would still enjoy the album if there were more, I don't know, "meat" to the sound. There are symphonic passages, and I would normally love these parts. Yet, they seem soulless and just average. In fact, much of the album is rather ambient in nature: Ambient symphonics play as the vocalist sings---not much else happens. Altogether, it is an interesting band, but not one that I really like particularly. Add to all this that the album seems to center around lovesick frivolities, and I really am not horribly interested in listening to it more than I have already.
