3 stars This forth albun from Dutch band CLIFFHANGER "Hope and Despair" is my first contact with their sound and one thing call my attention immediately... the easiness with they mix simple and " danceable" moments with intricate scales and musical passages. This danceable moments are in intimate relation with the bass guitar lines, which makes their music at least very original. However, this danceable moments in certain passages are long and monotonous, but in the most of times don't are long enough to ruin the totality of work. Other important characteristic is the great difficulty in associate their music with any influences ! I can't find none so clear to deserves mention, maybe a little bit of I Q . The best tracks are: track 1 "Escape" , track 4 "Good Things (last Forever)", track 5 "Fells Like Flying" and track 9 "Kill Your Darlings". My rate is3 stars !!!
