3 stars Progressive pop? More pop than progressive.

The music has a particular style and defined. With some good vocal harmonies and intelligent developments in general. What I'm not convinced is the instrumentation. In many cases there is an explosive sound ball, uncontrolled, without much sense to me. In other good mixing is achieved, as in Special or Why Are You Looking Grave?, But focused more to Indie.

The last two tracks are gentler: White Lips Kissed begins with a soft piano, sung with feeling and energy that is gaining in its development, but without being chaotic. Louise Louisa walking trails similar, though a bit monotonous. It has good ideas and is dose variation. Good finish.

The artwork is absolutely tasteless.

I can not assign more than 3 in rating.
