3 stars Through repeated listenings, the comparison of The Black Noodle Project to Pink Floyd remains at the forefront of my perception of their music. Primarily in song and chord structure, the similarities to Floyd are too strong to be ignored. More than just passing references, rhytmic and chord structures seem to be lifted from "Animals" and "Wish You Were Here" primarily, and various other PF works to a lesser extent.

What separates this from being a straight up Pink Floyd clone are the harsher tones this band uses to perform the pieces. To me, it sounds as if Karnivool, or a band like them were performing Floyd tracks. This is not altogether a bad thing. The music is quite powerful, and creates an enjoyable listening experience.

Were it not for the prevalent Pink Floyd overtones, I might give this 4 stars. But the derivative sound of the album reduces theb rating to only 3 stars.
