Well, it just came out today. I rushed around three different stores trying to find a copy, and I've been listening to it for a while now... It didn't live up to my expectations. Perhaps their masterpiece In Absentia set the bar a bit too high, but even still, IMO this album does not have an original or exciting flavor. The opening track reminds me of Rammstein for some reason (yikes!), track 2 is more bonehead rock than interesting prog (as are most of the tracks on here unfortunately, IMO), Lazarus is poppy but interesting - pity it's not a real piano being played . Track 4 is bonehead rock again, and the "culminating masterpiece" Arriving Somewhere But Not Here falls short of the hype. In fact, the only songs that really stand out are track 8 (co-written by drummer Gavin Harrison - might explain why it has by far the most interesting rhythm, despite a very predictible chorus progression), and the "hidden" track Shesmovedon, which is better fare than the rest of it and showcases Harrison's extremely advanced and polished drum chops. Something about this album doesn't sit right with me, it just sounds "ready for radio", not really progressive or innovative, and the lyrics seem kinda hodge-podged together. 7/10 But hey, maybe I'm being overly negative, or just plain deaf. Please share your comments (if you have any). For any new listeners, PLEASE pick up In Absentia, I feel it's an absolutely stellar art-rock album.
