Review by Chris S

1 stars This album unfortunately does not flow coherently enough. At times bordering on avante-garde and yet other times simply trip hop. Yes vocally strong with some good windpipes in the voice division but overall the album fails to deliver a consistent thread and blows hot and cold too often to command tolerance. Borderline crossover entrance yet the theme parts alone are not enough to raise the bar. ' Sam's Song' is OK as is " You Move in Me' but Magenta and PF support vocalists have done much better before. Completionists will already have this album and I guess exposure to the material may stay, sadly, with completionists too. Not to say the musicianship is not good, but there is that ' been there, done that, worn the T-shirt' feel to the output.
