5 stars This is the PT album getting the most spins on my CD player. I loved this album from the start. As with stupid Dream and In Absentia there's not one single weak track on it, but what an increase in overall quality. IMHO the title track, the beautiful ballad LAZARUS and ARRIVING SOMEWHERE... are among the best songs they ever did. Mention should also be made of OPEN CAR and STARTING SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL which turn out to be really cool after one has worn off the hypnosis carried out by the aforementioned three tracks. MELLOTRON SCRATCH and GLASS ARM SHATTERING are valuable ballads. That leaves us with SHALLOW and HALO. Both songs add a more rocky edge to the album, SHALLOW having a banal verse part (musically) and a great chorus. With HALO its rather the other way round. As I said I love this album, what else can I rate it but 5 stars?
