Trying to be too smart,
This review is from: Goodbye (Audio CD)
Like an earlier reviewer I find that his album can be actually uncomfortable to listen to, there are lots of cloying vocals and at times its very difficult to isolate individual sounds as it washes over you in a sonic maelstrom. I have frequently just had to turn it off!
I don't understand what he has tried to achieve on this album, many of the tracks start well but then take off into a cluttered mess. Where is the space gone, the tracks cant catch a breath, where are the lovely transitions, instead we have this fog of sound with nothing to lend clarity.
The one shining exception is Goodbye, it may sound like more traditional Schnauss but at that it ranks up there with some of his best.
Maybe in his quest to provide another great album he has tried to be too smart and thrown the baby out with the bathwater.
