Album Review

Reviewed 2003-04-20 
Mix of prog/rock/chamber. Most tracks have a gentle rock flow rather than a beat. Soaring drawn-out expansive male vocals, soft guitar, violin, bass, drums. Lots of pace changes in each song. The music is terrific and interesting, but sometimes the lingering, drawn-out lyrics are a step behind where the faster-paced pushing forward music is. Maybe that’s where the sticker’s “opera” reference comes in. Sounds heavily-produced in parts. Recommend 2,3,7.
1 – instrumental, violin, beautiful acoustic guitar, percussion
2 – lo-fi preachy voice and clattering background noise with gentle instrumental opening, soaring male vocals with rolling guitar and drum beat, tempo changes, gets pretty rocking by the end
3 – alternates between hard rock with guitar, bass, drums, and gentle guitar strumming with slow, paced vocals
4 – straight-up fast rock with a violin interlude
5 – alternating fast/slow paces
6 – alternating sections of ringing guitar, wavy vocals, with gentle rhythm
7 – gentle rolling pace, good fit between vocals and music pace
8 – louder guitars, rock beat, has a short break followed by ominous drum beat and distant guitar sounds
9 – long (9 min), typical stuff for first 3 min., then 6 min. of lo-fi background noises and voices, including a crying child and an alarm
