This review is from: Brain Thrust Mastery (Audio CD)
I don't usually write amazon reviews: I'm somewhat wary of my friends finding them and laughing at me for not being cynical and detached. Nonetheless, I feel it is necessary in this case due to all these negative reviews! No, this album is not With Love and Squalor (an excellent album, yes), but if it was surely there'd be even more complaints of WAS's lack of ability to move on? This album is calmer, is more subtle, but I have to say it's absolutely fantastic! From the catchy, fast-paced moments of 'Chick-Lit' and 'Dinosaurs' to the sad, melancholic 'Spoken For' to the, frankly quite bizarre, 'That's What Counts'. The lyrics are often thoughtful and clever, the melodies are catchy and most importantly, it is a progression from their previous CD. Personal high-points are 'Let's See It', 'Lethal Enforcer', 'Chick-Lit', 'That's What Counts' and 'Altered Beast', though to be honest I've not listened to anything but this CD for a full week and I still love every song. Give it a chance.
