2 stars Two sides. Two songs. Two stars.

I really can't be very much enthusiast about this album. So many four or even five stars rating. What's all the fuzz, really ?

It is a funky album, not a prog one. "Part One" is particularly hard to digest. Good moments will be scarce. The first half of it is particularly hard to bear. It gets a bit better during the second part while the hypnotic beat takes up and is mixed with some nice symphonic sections. Some hard-rock oriented music to follow and finally some psychedelic to finish (although also on the hard side).

This first part is too jam-oriented to be really interesting to my ears. As if "Nekatr" wanted to prolonged the experience of their very average "Sounds Like This". Two stars for this song.

Can we hope for an improvement with "Part Two" (but it isn't that difficult) ? Well, yes and no. It sounds fresher, more inspired during the intro but the first vocal part and its funky mood again brings us to "Part One" actually. These funky beats will reappear a little later. Part Two, will finally turn proggy during some brief moments. Vocals will be more harmonious, guitar more passionate. But it is only for a little while.

IMO, this album is seriously overrated. Two stars is all what it'll get from me. Stick to their debut one or to "A Tab in the Ocean". At least it is psyche and space-rock oriented. Which is precely why this band sits in this category.
