3 stars Even though this album may often be overlooked by DT fans, I don't find it inferior to the rest of their discography at all. It does have the problem of the vocalist (who makes it difficult to get through the whole album), and the album does sound like a debut (somewhat immature). But it's got many really great songs anyway. As has been told before, The Ytse Jam is indeed one of the most important songs for the band. Status Seeker and Afterlife are very good songs on which Dominici doesn't sound so annoying. And for me, Only a Matter of Time, is the strongest song on this album, as good as anything they've released later on, with some really beautiful keyboard moments, and the vocals do totaly fit the song beautifully.
