3 stars I like this album a lot. The word eclectic certainly comes to mind. And I also want to call it a deliciously fresh and playful record.

I don't see it as something groundbreaking though.

Dancing with the monks - A nice and catchy start to the album. Well played and well produced with some quirks here and there. But in the end, it is rather straightforward. 7/10

Ambitions is one of the tracks that I enjoy most. I like the great guitar soloing. It's one of the most proggy pieces on the album 8.5/10

Shadow Soaked is an up-tempo quirky song. Well played but rather straightforward at the end 7/10

Going is a song that ebbs and flows nicely. But again, nothing special or groundbreaking in my book 7/10

Scientific Candy is another nice track. Enjoyable to listen to, but never challenging or inciting (for me) 7/10

Beautiful Stain is where I start to see some repetitiveness on the record. Not bad, but also not special 7/10T

Insatiable is more interesting than many other tracks on the album. 8/10

Collapsed spirit has some great elements like the guitar and key solos. They lift the song to a higher level. 8/10

Wezler's choice is a nice closer but also a bit repeating the musical themes of earlier tracks 7/10

All in all, this is a solid record and I rate it 3 stars. Good, not non-essential.

WJA-K | 3/5 |
