From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I heard this on YouTube a few times and decided I needed to buy it. Strange, I know spending money on music that is freely available on the Internet. It is the right thing to do.

This is a quirky, kind of weird collection. Sometime dark, always interesting. The lead vocals are ok, but might not please everyone. In some places, I am reminded of 90s darkwave, proto-prog of the 60s, Nick Cave, and Van der Graaf Generator's simpler side. The arrangements and atmosphere are nothing completely new, but there is amazing tension and release.

The recording is pretty good and the inclusion of real and sampled instruments throughout (at times hard to tell which is which) make this all the better.

Not a bad song on here as long as you are not looking for pop songs. Have a listen without prejudice and let your mind be taken away.
