Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by Warthur
2 stars Did someone slip Elend an Art Zoyd album in between Winds Devouring Men and this one? I ask because the anxious, rhythmic pulsating of several of the compositions on here puts me in mind of the avant-garde chamber prog orchestral nightmares that Art Zoyd produce. It's an interesting twist to Elend's sound which makes this perhaps the most interesting of their albums for me, but let's not get confused here - it isn't such a dominant aspect of their formula here that it drags the album all the way into avant-prog territory, and I'm still not convinced the rest of their recipe is really strong enough to hold my interest.
