3 stars Am I the first to be unsatisfied with it?

Nothing extremely awful - riffs are crinchy, acoustics are touchy, everything in its right place...But tracks are short and undeveloped, melodies are bleak and somewhat nu- metalish and the whole impression is like standing on a crossroad. Very uneven album, though very predictable in the same time. PELICAN is a good band, they had a wonderful album two years ago, but now they've decided to have a break and concentrate on a less complex stuff. And this is rather disappointing for me. Anyway, I like them and hope for a better (read "improved, challenging, more interesting") release in future.
