3 stars When i first heard anomaly (2 years ago?) i was expecting some kind of technical metal, because i was told that, it wasn't the case, but it didn't bother me, i like the new.

So, what i found in this band is some kind of "jazz-metal", something different from what i've heard in the last years, i can't tell you that this is the first band who tried this, but, at least, it sounds very different form others band, so, at the beginning it was the good point of this band, the bad point came after i while, after many listening: this guys tried to do the same "jazz-metal" in all the songs, but in other ways, the problem is that they couldn't create more than one type of sound, the whole album was the same idea, trying to be different, it was a bit repetitive, i couldn't find high points on the music, but neither low ones, so, i can't say it was a bad experience, but they weren't able to give more than one soun to the album, and with that sound they couldn't catch my whole attention.

Conclusion: not a bad album, but too repetitive for me, for the ones who are looking new ways to do metal, this could be an option, a serious one, but be ware, maybe heard the same idea for 40 minutes could be a little bit boring.
