Second Life Syndrome
2 stars This is another album that I really can't get into very well. It has some interesting parts, but it just seems so "blah" overall. Let me explain:

The vocalist really irks me. I don't know why, but his boy band vox are annoying. I could barely listen to the rest of the album. On top of this, the compositions seem to ramble and really have little to no point. The lyrics are well done, but I really can't remember much about them, except that they seem pointless. Again, though, the composition seems like it was made to sound like prog, and not actually BE prog. It's as if they thought adding extended portions somehow makes them prog.

There is absolutely nothing interesting that happens, and nothing unique or original is ever displayed. There is some nice synth near the end, and the final track is passably listenable. But, overall, the album is below average, whether we speak of the easy-as-pie instrumentation or the overall lack of structure and point. Maybe this is for fans of indie rock and post rock, but it certainly isn't for me.

Second Life Syndrome | 2/5 |
