I could spend a long time comparing this album with Doppelganger but I will try and summarise - it is... different. To my personal taste I am disappointed to see that the band are moving towards a more poppy, mainstream sound, but when the band do move back towards their post-hardcore roots - it delivers on maybe even a higher level than Doppelganger, and certainly has a cleaner production.

When I put Manipulator in my cd player and listened to the first track, my first impression was "oh dear." Where were the blistering guitars pounding beats and violent screams? "Cut down all the trees and name streets after them" starts weakly but to my joy as it moved towards a climax I heard the Fall of Troy I love. As Erak bellows "THIS IS WHERE WE STAND!!" I started to get the impulse to puch things.

The album is impressive, I really like new features Fall of Troy have incorporated into their sound - stop starts, drum fills, and falsetto axel rose-esque squeals amongst other vocal techniques Erak continues to explore.

As I thought to myself "Fall of Troy should stick to harder, metally stuff" I was hit with "Quarter Past". I have to say this is one of my favorites. Eraks voice isnt really suited to really melodic, tuneful stuff (being slightly nasal and a tendency to annoy) but Quarter past is incredibly satisfying and delivers on an entirely different level than I have seen before in Fall of Troy's work.

The brief "Problem" saw my hunger for violence soon satisfied. This song sounds like it belongs on Doppelganger, and is a perfectly structured but short experience with a brilliant selection of thundering drum and bass breaks with frantic screaming.

Then we come to track 7 - and so begins the awesome foursome. Tracks 7,8,9 and 10 are simply brilliant.

The album is very nicely polished and well made, I enjoy all the tracks on the album and I can't see an obvious filler. All songs cater for different people, you have the classic screamo stuff, mixed with very much popper tracks but still maintaining the metal-like riffs and the distorted guitar. The Vocals are much improved but some people might prefer his earlier singing styles seen in the previous album doppleganger. But it is true you need decent speakers to really enjoy it more.

Better than doppleganger? In many ways yes, depends how into their heavier stuff you are. You really cant help but think they are trying to enter the mtv mass market world, and some people might not like that aspect. But buy it, it certainly is varied and provides for all.

The better your speakers are the better this album sounds simply because you need the good sound quality to really see all the complexities in this album. Each song is wonderful, you can see that they have drawn influences from far and wide and it shows. In parts it sounds prog-rocky, some parts metal, some parts more poppy, really varying from song to song. Even Thomas Erak's solo piece 'Caught Up' works on the album although it may not be to everyone's taste. If you like music, buy this album, but make sure to approach it with an open mind.
