5.0 out of 5 stars Give it time!, 2 July 2006
This review is from: Death Of A Dead Day (Audio CD)
The inevitable second album problem! The first thing you notice going through it, is what you feel it is missing. In my case, I missed the sense of humour of tracks like Such the fool and hold my finger. I miss the catchy choruses of scent of the obscene and poppiness of peep show. And I swear it's harder to tell what they are saying on this album.

But!

It offers a lot of great new stuff. Sikth have managed to get faster and more complicated (sometimes I think at the expense of songmanship) which once you learn the songs a bit you really start to nod your head to :)

There are solos! And they are damn good, esp in In this light, and sinking ship.

The songcraft on the songier songs has changed a bit, and 'part of the friction' is really a great example of what they can do when they tone down the craziness a bit. Although in a frustrating sense of deja vu, I preferred the non-album version!

All in all I don't think they can ever recreate the magic of the ep's, but this is still a damn good album that gets a little better each and every time you hear it.
