..........isn't gone yet guys.

Because this album has tons of it. Long release, one of the longer I've seen in the days of 2010. Reminding me I don't even know what, its sound is quite unique. It's exploration of new land / sound / plane (and whatever) scapes. There's also a lot of dreamy parts, jazzy parts, electronic modulated vocal parts and many others.

Wait a minute, this is Crossover, right ? Then it's OK (it would be OK anyway, because all these elements works here). One can maybe say that there's everything (and this idea wouldn't be too far from truth). I'll add that most of it (almost everything) is pleasant to listen (how they call it, ranging from neutral to beautiful).

Tasmania is a promising "intro" track, slowly building sounds from gentle ambient music, gaining "weight", more detailed textured, it serves as flagship of this album, setting the atmosphere of entire album. When keyboards kicks in, I was quite surprised. I wasn't expecting them, same as Hard Rock riffs that comes after them. This song graduates in harmony of many instruments. Good thing is that it doesn't sound forced, but more like flow of the river. Australia => Tasmania.

Fast Car is different, it's more straight song, not providing so much of innovative things, except solos, that are (if Tasmania was in the end multi-layered, then this must be...) mega-layered. Maybe I just don't like whole feeling of this song so much (some elements here attracts me, but the atmosphere is losing here). However, this song is an exception. Not perfect, but good for sure, because after all, it ends well. Beginning is more mundane though.

Feel Alive is living track, with dreamy vocals.

Angels Face is half jamming, half ambient track. I like this combination, as it's something I don't know too much.

Let's face it, almost everything here is layered. And all tracks seems like dipped in Space Rock (sounds).

The ARNIOE, or There to calm places and Back Again to wild paced tunes (for those who didn't understand, it's rewritten title of "The Hobbit", yep, you can say this too. Some parts will certainly be less favourite in your liking preferences, but that's completely OK. It's very variable music, so this fact is supposed to count with. Plus add that it's almost one-man project (+ guests), it's so long and still interesting and it all results in fine

4(+) for solid (yet ethereal) album.
