4 stars Kaleidoscope sounds better than previous Mekong Delta albums but I don't think I could say it's the best band's release. It will be always after Dances Of Death. Of course it's still excellent music. Innocent proves that Mekong Delta were one of the most original metal bands. It's hard to describe that music. We can say it's techno-thrash, extreme avant-grade metal... but it's still not enough to describe what they play. It's not simple music but still very melodic. Sphere Eclipse has definitely something to do with Yes Heart Of Sunrise but it's still thrash metal piece. Complicated and extremely great;). Dance On A Volcano is Genesis cover and it's played with so much precision that sounds almost the same as original version. Heartbeat, Shadow Walker and Misunderstaning keep the high standards of this release. Sabre Dance is adaptation of famous Armenian 'war dance' classical piece. A little nice tune. I don't really get final song About Science. I'm not saying it's bad. The idea is quite in vein of whole album but not so memorable unfortunatelly. I think that little demonic technical thrash metal presented by the band is totally satisfying to any prog metal fan. This album like previous ones was remixed and remastered but I won't tell you what's the change cos I got first pressing of this record. Solid 4 stars.
