2 stars Maybe they ate too many raviolis while crafting this so-called project, maybe the raviolis were stuffed with something not very healthy, but the result is a tedious dish only appealing for fan consumers. Having this album rated as the all-time Marillion's masterpiece FUGAZI is a bad joke, let's be serious. The musical origins of Pete Trewavas is not enough to warrant anything, and his mating with Eric Blackwood will see much better moments in subsequent releases, such as THE FINAL BREATH BEFORE NOVEMBER, but here you'll only get a promise of what these people can do in the opener Dusk, and in the next Fracture/Fallout, a theme split in three pieces distributed over the album probably to leave a crumbtrail so to keep the listeners' interest amidst the musical desert they'll be forced to sail through, with some too familiar languid vocals, and little music but well threaded. A couple of musical ideas shamelessly overexploited throughout the album. There is nothing deserving fireworks, friends. The acclaimed A Million Miles Away is a boring insignificant pop song, Fallout repeats the voices in Dusk; Outerspaced, Spiraling, etc, (no need to name them all) are a pile of uninspired tracks, at times pretending to be experimental...they say, but with no music whatsoever, and the 15 min long The Awakening, is a repetitive four-notes tune stretched out till you fall asleep.
poito | 2/5 |
