2 stars After 'sunsets on empire' I was expecting much when I bought 'raingods with zippos'. However, I got disappointed hearing this album.

the first six tracks are average pop songs, nothing special here, then the suite 'plague of ghosts' follows. while many of the reviewers praise this suite, I just can't get into it. My complaints:

1. the suite's too long considering the music contained in it, too many filler material (parts 1, 3, 4)

2. the different parts don't really fit together well

the best songs IMHO are 'digging deep' and 'raingod's dancing' (in fact one of my favourite Fish songs); but they can't really save this album as a whole...
