4 stars Respect to the first two albums, PERHAPS third has two significant differences: vocals, even if some are just speech, and an album divided into tracks. Let's say that the vocals are well integrated in the music, so it's not a change as big is it could seem, and also the division into tracks seems more "logical" than "physical".

The tracks fade one into the following with continuity and the total length is very similar to that of the first two albums: a bit more than 35 minutes.

But those 35 minutes are very rich and intense.. I insist in saying that PERHAPS have somethig that reminds to YES, and the first minute of this album gives me this impression, but then it crosses a lot of subgenres: psychedelia, rock, there's a bit of everything. Also some vynil scratch can be heard. The guitar riffs are fast and technically perfect.

Sometimes it may sound as a trippy improvisation, and probably parts of this album are improvised, but the huge instrumental skills of the band members is evident also in the improvised parts. On the coutrary: I'd say that the most chaotic and improvised sections are the more enjoyable. THe final of Donzo's Montreaux is a crazy mixture of sounds kept together by drums and bass which are perfectly synchronized, so it doesn't sound very much improvised.

In 2015 we fans were left stunned by the announcement of the band's split, but luckiky they later changed their minds. I like thinking that the messages sent to them by the users on progarchives have contributed in rolling that decision back.
