2 stars actually 2.5

US is a dutch prog rock band with quite a prolific career in terms of releasing albums, since 2002 when first album appear they release each year an album. In 2010 comes feeding the crocodile. Well, I had hard times listning to this album, not because is overall really bad, but lacks big time in captivating moments and inventive passagaes. If Eamon's day or Young and restless was very fine albums who I've rated 4 stars, this one is a let down in any aspect. Only 3 pieces, the title track had nearly 45 min in lengh and is almost a total waste. Only two musicians here remains from the previous albums, Jos Wernars responsable for all instrumetal arrangements here and Marijke on voice. Some good moments can be found aswell on title track, specialy on instrumental parts, some symphonic prog with neo touches but quite far from the great albums bands release prior to this one. This type of prog can be listned in the back ground, few minor highlights as I said in instrumental passages but overall is terrible to digest and even boring and chaotic, The Greatest Show On Earth is boring like hell. 2-2.5 stars. I like this band, so if you want tot discove their highlights try Eamon's day or Young and restless, to me their best albums for sure.

1 stars Damn! I have to write one more time a much critical review! Maybe I'm not lucky those days, maybe it's just a coincidence ... but when a band decides to tackle a new album and start it with an extremely ambitious 42 minutes long track, they'd better be armed with good weapons! Cheesy synth sou ... (read more)

2 stars A great deception !!!. After having given note maxim to two of their previous disks "The Young and the Restless" & Sorrow in our Hearts") to hear "Feeding The Crocodille." In this work the band US doesn't contemplate the same shine and creativity that it presented in the disks previously menti ... (read more)
