Review by Epignosis
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Eclectic Prog Team
3 stars Maybeshewill adopts the tradition of using deceptively silly titles for either moving or boisterous instrumental music. A good effort, this would have benefited from tempering and more character.

"Ixnay on the Autoplay" A moving, slightly hypnotic introduction, this sounds like it could be the opening theme music for a medical drama like House.

"Seraphim & Cherubim" After the introduction builds, the band takes on a grungier, more traditional rock sound, letting up in places to permit some lovely strings and piano to shine through.

"The Paris Hilton Sex Tape" Unless the title is a not-too-subtle reference to "banging," which this piece exhibits plenty of, it's an odd title. However, there is a pleasant interaction of instruments here, especially the lead guitar and piano.

"I'm in Awe, Amadeus!" This lively opus is much like video game music (think Mega Man), which appeals to me. It's upbeat, but whimsical in the background.

"We Called for an Ambulance but a Fire Engine Came" This interestingly titled piece is a rambunctious affair, with crunchy guitar over weak-bodied drumming. It relents halfway through, offering the opposite- gorgeous strings and piano.

"Heartflusters" The first of two songs on the album has ill-fitting vocals and rather weak harmonies. The female vocal is amazing, and I wish the band would have put her out front for this one. It crackles and fizzles toward the end with electronic effects.

"C.N.T.R.C.K.T." Here the band returns to punchy grunge rock, once again tapering off to introduce quieter passages.

"He Films the Clouds, Part Two" Soft piano and electric guitar open the album's lengthiest piece. The electronic drums double the perceived tempo, again creating a primetime television drama's opening credits. Pure female vocals sing whole notes before a chorus joins in. It is quite a beautiful track overall.

"Not for Want of Trying" Enough with beauty, the band seems to say, as this hefty and gravelly track singes away in progressive metal fashion. The angry speech is from the 1976 film Network.

"Takotsubo" This final piece concludes the album with a graceful, yet repetitive electric piano and light electronic percussion.
