3 stars Consumption from 2005 is the follow up and is 100% better then the first opus who was a pretty forgetable one to say the least. This is much more like it, the compositions, the arrangements and overall sound is better for sure and what is important is more intresting in passages. This time definetly sounds prog to my ears with an eclectic feel to it in some pieces and intresting is that Eyestrings here sounds very Discipline, that combination of Van Der Graaf Generator with King Crimson and some symphonic prog touches here and there, a perfect example is ending track Lifelines. Good ones are instrumental Groove seven, a very nice one with great passages, from guitar and keyboards work at full capacity, ending track is pretty much ok most of the time, has some good instrumental parts quite dark but works for me more then ok specilly the keyboards around min 13-15 very good sound and arrangements, another good one is Valid For A Week. So, definetly more serious release then debute and with a clear direction now towards eclectic zone then Burdened hands. Another awful cover art and booklet, damn designer, because the music this time is good. 3 solid stars.
