4 stars Original it is say I should have. Although in 21, I probably like both parts, first one (calmer) more suits my needs and desires. Second one is fine also, but not as much. Anyway, it still stands still and firm. This album is pleasant surprise. I avoided this group for some time, because of their name (have not so good sound in my language).

There's one particular thing I like here a lot, vocal harmonies of (two) more people at once, dueling pretty nicely, usually followed by climax (demonstrated in the middle of Memoirs for example). Because this is a poetry, it's a story told in form of music, but it's a strange story. You maybe know this reviewing pattern, "all good pieces are in, present here, but when mixed together, it simply doesn't work". Not, this is opposite case, there are elements that wouldn't make sense to me normally (not my cup of tea), but somehow, it works. And I'm enjoying it then, making somewhat of peace agreement. Yeah, I almost forgot. I didn't want to "get into" this group, but by my friend's suggestion, I've started and I don't regret.

4(+), for starters.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
