"still having all those elements we're known for",
This review is from: Abrahadabra (Audio CD)In a word, this album blows.
The departure of Mustis is what I feel the most. The piano/orchestra portions are bland, as is the guitar. Nothing really happens musically during the entire album, that is a feat in of itself. Since the release of In Sorte Diaboli the composition seemed like a random gluing together of neat-sounding riffs. Dimmu have always had slightly strange transitions in their songs, which don't feel polished, before they were offset by the clever syncopation or harmonies, now it's a broken LP, glued back together in a jumble.
Save yourself the money and listen to the tracks posted on their MySpace page. As you go back in time, watch the music improve. It's a shame, I was hoping to see something interesting come of it...
