Concept of art, love and the making!,
This review is from: For the Love of Art & the Maki (Audio CD)
This is to-date, the third and latest Beyond Twilight album from this incredible Danish prog metal group. This record is quite a difficult album to review as I feel its very nature is likely to polarize opinion. From this reviewers angle however, I feel that the track listing arrangement here is likely to be prohibitive and non-sensical to slipstream metal fans, as we have just a one 38 minute song broken down into roughly as many smaller pieces- linked together seamlessly.
The album faces many aspects of life story and the breakdown of the tracklisting is not exactly required but doesn't hampen the experience either. It's exactly part of a puzzle and the pieces of the puzzle tell the story depending on how many sections are listened to and in what succession/order they are in.
Constructively, the album (especially lyrically) comes across as a little bit pompus, helmed togther by a slight lack of gelling; but I overall, highly enjoyed my sitting with this one. It doesn't quite complete a hat-trick for the band in the phenominal standards set by they're first subliminal two albums but it was an experiemce all the same. So, Edge of Sanity's"Crimson" it ain't, but it is a relatively short affair (at 38 minutes) that make it all bitsize and manageable..... Definately worth the look into for power and prog metal fans.,
