Prog Reviewer
3 stars The third album from POOR GENETIC MATERIAL contains music that is a mix between neo-progressive rock (IQ, LANDS END, MARILLION, PALLAS) and 80's artists such as Brian Eno and David Sylvian. Brian Eno for the ambient parts and David Sylvian for the vocal technique. Philip Griffiths (vocals), Dennis Sturm (bass) and Ludwig Benedek (drums) are new in the band, but not for the progressive public, as they are members of ALIAS EYE. The CD-packaging is very beautiful and professional, but the music is quite boring. I rather prefer the music Philip and Ludwig are playing in ALIAS EYE.

POOR GENETIC MATERIAL is a skilful band but they doesn't deliver anything technically stunning, and the melodies aren't good enough to be remembered in their own rights. Of course this kind of music has its listeners too, and I'm a big fan of both Brian Eno and David Sylvian, but this album didn't appeal to me.
