3 stars The lotus effect is the last offer to date of this dutch prog metal band. Released in 2011 at same LionMusic, this album was something of a let down from previous one. I mean this not bad at all but far from greatneass of previous album Artemisa. Another long album clocking around 70 min overall, this time Sun Caged optain for a crunchier and more heavier passages in places. The voice is again good, the solos of Coenen are ok, the drums ok, then what's missing? I guess solid and captivating song writting, they all handle the instruments very well but is not enough, is needed memorable and intresting passages to be found. Here on this album almost all pieces sound the same, and because they incorporated in some parts heavier sections is not totaly for my kind , really. Anyway some good tunes are present like Tip-Toe the Fault-Line , a very strong prog metal piece with blistering keyboards are faultless musicianship, another worthy one is On Again/Off Again, the rest are ok but nothing more. So overall 3 stars for this new Sun Caged album, less intresting and enjoyble then previous one Artemisia.
