3 stars When i first listened through this album, i was very disappointed and felt genuinely let down. I listened to Breed and Guardian beforehand on their site, and was very impressed. Perhaps this is why i felt so let down. The reason i disliked this album at first was because it felt to me that instrumentally and structurally, they hadn't actually gone anywhere from PNtK. The only thing that felt different was vocals. I was very impressed when i heard his vocals, although often monotonous, he has a very distinctive and powerful voice. But unfortunately, you hear very little of him. As this is such a short album, it left me feeling unfulfilled, and hungry for more. Although the music is generally good, it just seems to have gone nowhere from the last album, it is a pretty good album. Just nothing special, which it should have been with such an original Concept.

2 stars When i first heard this album i thought hmm.....who's trying too hard to sound like Frank Zappa? it really is, they sound like if Zappa went metal, and the concept is as barmy as anything Mr.Zappa would have made up, a concept album revolving round his dog, now as a guy who has recently lost a dog due to old age just a few days ago this release appealed to me, for some reason. Im not really gonna say too much else about this album only that i was really dissapointed, i thought it started good, interesting even but after a while the 'novelty' just seemed too stale and wasnt even funny anymore;

Gift - 8/10 Promenade - 7/10 Breed - 4/10 Silent Door - 5/10 Bella Morte - 4/10 Nina - 4/10 Guardian- 3/10 Spider Shaped Leaves - 7/10 Bark Loud - 4/10

My Conclusion? saying as this is the first album i have heard of this band im gonna let them off lightly as i think they can and maybe have done better than this, if you wana hear this band this is not a good starting point.

RIP Toady Payne 1997-2010
