Here is a band that is one with the environment. This is a new twist here. Right off the bat here, the vocals drive me crazy. They are whinny and very much a turn off in my opinion. The music is upbeat and odd. They use special effects that sound tripped out and spacey in an unusual way. The vocals seem to remind me of James LaBrie, but worse. This is what is offered on the opener "What Are You Waiting For". It's mid paced with a slight touch of Prog/Rock thrown in for good measure.
The next track goes right into a ballad which I am not sure is a good thing. I thought it was always a good idea to have at least 3-4 upbeat songs before taking it down a few. They waste no time and hit for the ballad. It's very slow and really doesn't do much. "Explosive Paste" is another odd mid paced song. This is one CD that is really hard to get into even if you are a Prog/Rock fan.
I find the compositions very unusual and unentertaining. The vocals did absolutely nothing for me. Perhaps I need to hear this several times before I like it, but I just can't seem to do it. (Online July 13, 2003)
