4 stars A very,very strange album. I have been listening to this for a while, and i still don't fully "get it". But either way, it is still a good album. There are many highlights from this album. Unfortunatly, there are bad parts to this album that really can slow the ablum down. First the bad, FraKctured, The Project-X song, and (at times) LTIA part IV. The rest of them are pretty good to great. The ConstruKction of Light is really powerful and the interplay of the instraments is really great. The World Is My Oyster one of the best songs form Crimson (and again I mean form any era). The Lyrics are fantastic for that song. But for the rest of the album, excluding TCOL and C:IHAD, the lyrics are nothing spectacular. Fans really should not dismiss this album as "trash", but should embrace it. You probably won't like it the first go around, but keep listening, you'll get it (and like it) eventually.
Man With Hat | 4/5 |
