1 stars This is an unfortunately failed attempt by Senmuth to release a collaboration album and make something different. I have to say that I have struggled more than usually to reach the end of the album at the first listen, and the second wasn't easier.

I'm relistening to it for the third time while I'm writing. In general three listens may be too few for a review, but my impressions are not changing.

The first track sounds like a Russian version of Linkin Park, the second is a little better. If you like growl I think this "BlackWorm" is a good growler, but on a so slow and melodic theme it appears outplaced. Track 3 is another "Russian Park" skippable song. Track 4 is not bad, instead. It's close to NeNasty, a Senmuth's side project that was rejected by the prog-metal team with the motivation that they sound like Lacuna Coil. I like Lacuna Coil and I'm not ashamed, also Evanescence, so I don't dislike this. "Majestic Leaving" is a classic Senmuth's track even if not one of the best. Let's save this one ....and let's skip the following. I think I don't like "Novocaine"'s singing. Track 7 features a good female voice, but the song is nothing special. Just dark electropop. Track 8 wouldn't be so bad if instrumental only. Track 9 is unusual for Senmuth. The acoustic guitar is good but the electronic drumming sounds like pop/dance stuff. An error of production, maybe.

Track 9 is the alternative version of Track 6. Not so bad as the Novocaine version is. This version is listenable. Track 10 (alternative version of track 1) doesn't acquire more taste respect to the other version, but at least it doesn't sound like Linkin Park. Let me clarify that it's not that I think that Linkin Park are absolutely bad. It's that if I want to hear them I don't put on Senmuth and vice.versa. I've been unable to understtand what the girl says in Spanish at the end apart of few words, too fast for me.

There's no sense in skipping an album that's offered for download for free, but if you have disk space issues this is something you can give up to. The less interesting Senmuth's work that I've listened to until now.
