2 stars WHY 43? NOT MORE OR LESS?

The band's third studio album "For The Love Of Art And The Making" is one of the weirdest stuff has my ears ever received. Cut into 43 pieces of short passages, the album itself doesn't reveal the reason to be divided into that many pieces, and however all the elements and parts are not as much as seperated as it would have been. For example, track 11 "sweet irony" starts with a mind-blowing heavy riff but is extinguished in the half and the transition between is real poor. Why these 2 parts are not cut? Hell I don't know.

Although there are many brilliant ideas, elements, melodies and composition throughout the album, all this stuff is so generously spent that you can not digest a single one before the track ever changes. If the album were any longer (actually much more longer) I could accept this trash-binlike use of melodies (it would be comprehensible to be cut in order to fit into a CD's length), but ladies and gentlemen, it stands just funny for me to see a 37 minute-long album with 43 tracks. Again track 11 as an example (no, I did not only listened to "sweet irony" before writing this review, lol) the beautiful idea in track's intro is played once and is lost. Where did it go? Nope, I don't know!

Beyond all this, if you compose something in the same key throughly, and if you know a little harmony, when it is divided, all parts that are randomly brought together will fit. And will fit better than its un-cut counterpart in track 11!!!! (I really am disturbed by this track, haha!)

Eschatalogically, the album is like a trash-bin to me, which all the ideas and melodies are thrown into, and composed some nonsense. The tragic part is that if this album were to be 6 or 7 tracks at all it would have received at least a 4 star-rating from me.
