5 stars This is my first album review -EVER! Normally I just listen to an album and like it (or most often: not). I donīt preach and I donīt want to impose my taste on others on a highly subjective matter such as music. Well, I will make an exception here! This album is SO good, I JUST HAVE TO tell the world! ;-)

T's newest approach includes references to so many genres that you almost get dizzy while listening. Certainly this is where the negative ratings come from! It takes a while to get a grip in the whirl of what the artist himself describes as "artpostprogressivepopavantgardenewwaverocktriphop " on his facebook page.

On the whole, what makes this album so very special is the way it works on very many levels. First, the innovative potential is incredible. Second, the music itself just keeps going through your head and you find yourself whistling tunes in 9/8 after listening (Gosh!). Third, the emotional impact is also incredible; there were many parts that actually brought me to tears (which leads us to fourth:) or even to bursting laughter because of the blunt black humour in the lyrics and the music (Guys! This is actually funny progrock going on (in parts)!) Fifth: The lyrics are poetry of the most sophisticated kind. Wonderful!

When you get all this together, what you have is nothing short of a masterpiece. Also, the negative ratings speak for this: It simply isn't banal and mainstreamy enough to be liked by everyone.
