5 stars With this album Archive have written their name in the prog hall of fame!

Archive's best album to date starts off with Again - a superb 16+ minutes track that shows that Archive decided to become the first band to mix trip hop with PF-rooted prog rock. The song is very emotional with great vocals by Walker, it really can give you goosebumps. Numb is a psychodelic track with some heavy guitars at the end. Meon is a dreamy ballad featuring female voices and Goodbye sounds like a lullaby. I consider the next two short tracks to be the introduction to the great Finding it so hard - this is a very intensive and again very emotional song with some hard drumming. Fool is probably the most trip hop rooted song on this album, but I consider it to be one of the best. Hate is the weakest point of this album although I like the trumpet. Need is a short, yet very beautiful acoustic ballad. A perfect ending toa magnificent album.

If you buy the wersion with the additional disc you'll get 4 tracks with such gems as Junkie Shuffle and Sham. Songs form The Absurd EP don't stand out form those on the album.

To me this is one of the most important albums of the last decade. It's definitly worth checking out.
