4.0 out of 5 stars The Optimist is right ..........but
with the amount of dross being released lately this is not that bad.

Admittedly, it's not as good as their previous albums but we still have something that is well crafted, well produced - recognizing genuine talent.

It wont change your world but it will make you nod your head and tap your feet - enough said

3.0 out of 5 stars Relentless
Too one paced for me, for sure there are some good ideas on here but as my title suggests, this is a relentless barrage of noise with few real "tunes". Wall era Pink Floyd infuse a few of the tracks and Low period Bowie as well but on the whole I have to be disappointed with a band who started out so well.

3.0 out of 5 stars A step back, 13 Nov 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SECRET MACHINES (Audio CD)
For those expecting a move onwards and upwards from 10 Silver Drops this will be a disappointment. It's almost as if the creativity well that promised so much has run dry. The heavy, driving rhythms that characterised the earlier albums are still present but they are recognisable in that the listener thinks 'I've heard that before and this is just a re-work'. While the band is much hyped as a Zep/Floyd blend the reality is that this album is a retrograde experience. It's a bit like Floyd releasing Atom Heart Mother after Dark Side or Led Zep 2 after 4. If there's to be another album from these guys they need to raise their game, not just the noise levels. I can't help but feel that their producer on this album has done them no favours. Time for some fresh inspiration guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic, 20 Oct 2008
This review is from: SECRET MACHINES (Audio CD)
Another classic from one of the most underated bands I have heard. I havn't heard a bad album by these guys and wish them the success they deserve.
