3 stars Not 5 star because just the suit A Change of Season is the only good thing of this album, the rest, i don't even listen it, so, if DT would have done a full album instead of a half album, maybe it would be one of the best album of DT, but they didn't.

So, let's go o talk about the good part: the song with the name of the album. A change of season is a song talking about the life, when you are young, old, dead, etc., that's why the name, the lyrics aren't why i rate an album: i don't care about the message, i care about the music, if i'd care about the message, Intillimani would never be in my musical box. The sound of the album y a fresh music with complex textures sometimes and changing a lot of tune, rhythm and texture during the whole 24 minutes, with some instrumentals parts, a lot of instrumental part indeed, rich in sound a power, the non-instrumental parts are also good, and varying the emotion of LaBrie making a great couple with the instruments in those moments.

A really great song at the beginning, but the rest, to forget.

CGH Tompkins | 3/5 |
