Top critical review
on 5 February 2015
Nowhere near as good as the first two albums in my opinion. I love this band, Identity the first album is superb as is All Rights Removed, if anything its better than the first, this their 3rd album lacks the emotional punch, it all sounds a bit dead to me. The other thing that lets this album down is the recording quality, it is compressed, not as bad as a lot of newer recordings, granted, but as the first two albums were really good this is a disappointment. If you listen to this album via MP3 it will sound fine, on the other hand, if you rip this cd to wav of flac and stream on a decent HiFi or cd player you can hear it is quite a compressed recording and that is sadly something all too common with the majority of newer recordings these days. All in all, disappointing, I was so looking forward to this release, lets hope they find their form, and a decent sound engineer for the next one.
