4.0 out of 5 stars Continuity Is An Issue!, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Theory Of Everything (Audio CD)
I have been collecting and listening to the music of Mr Arjen Lucassen for many years now and have always been struck by his take on Prog Rock, telling stories with the use of many vocals (male & female), multi faceted instrumentation and clear, crisp production, all rounded off with excellent album packaging - you cannot fault the man or his record company, they are indeed Excellent!
And, THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING, is on a par with it's bewitching storyline, production and the choice of musicians to make this a wonderful listening experience that you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else....
BUT, I have a real issue with the continuity. Obviously, as per usual, there are many tracks, as many sketches to build up a rather large aural picture and whereas this has always been pretty much seamless from track to track in the past, with THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING, it is not seamless, with the effect that as each track runs to the next it sounds almost as if there is a manufacturing fault on the disc in play....! And it is annoying and does, for me detract!
Don't get me wrong, the music really deserves the full five star rating but that niggling continuity issue forces me to drop it a notch - sorry, Arjen, but you set the bar so high that on this occasion, your post-production team have failed to quite nail it!
