2.0 out of 5 stars a severe letdown!, 15 Jan. 2010
This review is from: In the Unlikely Event (Audio CD)
Well thats a shame. After releasing thier eponymous debut album, the fall of troy have gone from strength to strength. Thier best album to date, manipulator (probably slightly controversial, i know a lot of fans didnt think it compared to doppelganger) has been followed however by the dire 'In the unlikely event'. It's not original or catchy, has poor vocals, uninteresting guitar work and most importantly - it is not fun to listen to. As a guitarist, i appreciated the earlier albums and certain parts (the solo in mouths like sidewinder missiles or the breakdown in seattlantis) genuinely brought a smile to my face each time i heard them. There are no such moments in this album it simply seems...uninspired. If you are new to the fall of troy, start off with manipulator, it is the most accessible, then doppleganger if you like what you heard, but stay clear of this! For TFOF fans, only get if your a completist, but you are not missing out. On a plus side, although it probably shows that the band know the album is no good, i caught them recently touring and promoting this album and they only played one song off it. That speaks volumes!
