2 stars Guitar is not so original here, huh ? Playing basically one riff all over the place, most of the time. As with this genre of music, I follow one rule. As long as it's listenable, I can appreciate it. But sadly, there are (as somebody wise pointed out) mostly noises and unpleasant music. OK, there has to be innovation and also a rebellion, but how far can it go ? This record has gone quite far. They are able to, they can. But in that case, I can't think so well about it. Only better tracks (yawn, by my opinion, I don't feel good repeating myself) are last two, Nemesis Voices and Ninth Wave, which reminds me Opeth's Watershed a lot. But the rest, I have nothing to catch by, nowhere to hook on and start something. This whole record is so hostile, that it's either me, or this album, but it's not because I hate style (as long as it lacks death metal growl, I'm happier by 1 star), or that I simply don't like this music. It's about what is this album offering. And I don't see much good things here.

2(+), but almost non-listenable, at least for me. And also except last 2 tracks, which raises the rating. I'm not against hard to get into music (I have to mention these bearded (I mean many times mentioned by me) Van Der Graaf Generator. This is also hard to get into music and voilá, I like most of their work. Same with Frank Zappa, or Gentle Giant. Even Magma. But this is ridiculous. I don't see almost no good here), I'm against irrelevant music. Music which can give you nothing.

Experimenting is a good thing. It's big part of prog. But if you make something so experimental, that it's unlistenable, then what. Rate it as perfect masterpiece, even if you can't stand it, not even after many listens ? Look, I've tried. After I wrote this review, I was thinking about what people brought to 1 and 5 stars ratings. And I saw my side more on 1 star.
