Takes time to grow on you
on October 2, 2009
My first 3 listens to this cd had me really bummed. I heard some theoretically good music, but it wasn't being processed as good in my brain. After the 6th listen, it has started to gel (i'm trying to learn to listen to a cd about 6 times before i post a review, cuz apparently my aging brain takes longer to absorb music). While I don't think there are any fantastic songs, there are several good ones: Blind House, Kneel and Disconnect, Your Unpleasant Family (wish it was longer), Flicker, Black Dahlia, Remember Me Lover. Drawing the Line has potential, but the chorus is a tad on the annoying side. No great rockers on here...pretty dark and mellow.
If you're new to PT, try a different starter album like In Absentia. If you're a PT fan, give it several listens and you'll want to keep it in the mix.
