Review by erik neuteboom
3 stars House Of Not is a four piece band from Canada with guest musicians on mandolin, bass, keyboards, drums, didgeridoo, trombone and background vocals. The music on their second album has a lot of variation, that is one part of the music, the other part is the fact that at least half of the compositions has strong echoes from Pink Floyd (compelling and bombastic featuring howling electric guitarplay) and Roger Waters solo (vocals and acoustic guitar). At some moments you got the idea that you are listening to 'lost legendary tapes'! Remarkable are songs with 'honky tonk piano'' or an acoustic guitar/piano duet or a didgeridoo, a wide range of instruments that makes this CD to an intersesting one, especially for the Floyd and Waters fans.
Review by Mellotron Storm
2 stars Similar to their debut but not quite as PINK FLOYD sounding. There is also more of a Blues feel to this one. The subject matter is mature as it is primarily about sex, not just the lyrics but the cover art as well. This part 2 is called "Sexus" where our subject Nexter Niode is experimenting with it.

The opener "Seance" is atmospheric and spooky sounding with percussion."Voodoo Bitch" opens with some good guitar as the male vocals come in followed by the strong vocals of Dee Brown. Some nice guitar solos later. "Whitehouse" is funky but not really my style of music. "Icons" is a heavier tune with some well done guitar solos. "Secret Garden" is good with some low end guitar and sax later in the song.

Unfortunately I really don't care for a lot of these songs at all. The vocalist sounds similar to Roger Waters but not as good, I even would go as far to say that the vocals annoy me. These guys remind me of a Canadian band I don't care for at all, which I know doesn't help.
