3 stars Quite a difficult album to judge. Although the craftsmanship is clearly very good, to me its pretty much the same base, tempo, song repeated over and over again for two and a half hours, with some minor variations in vocals and guitar/piano. It's a programmed album, and I suspect there's been an awful lot of copy and paste going on. A track by track review would be pretty pointless. I would recommend listening to Schizophrenia, and Supernatural Dream. Between these two tracks you've sampled the whole album and can make a judgement from there. Personally, I thought they were very good tracks. However it gets a bit boring when every track in between and after follows exactly the same mid-speed drumming and rhythm. Its decent as a soundtrack, or as background noise but that's it. One of those albums that it almost seems impossible to me how you could give it any more or less than three stars, as something that's well put together and isn't offensive to the ears, but offers zero wow factor.
