Sound — 8
The band really poured out some effort into this album. The CD begins with Ghostship Pt.1. This song has a rather long intro and starts slow but builds in intensity rather fast. Pt 2 like the first has a lot of intenisty to it and uses a church organ sounding instrument (not compleatly sure what kind of organ). There is no part 3, which may be released with an upcoming album or just never released at all. Part 4, and 5 are genius works. Tom is an amazeing guitarist's personally he is one of my idols and I would die to meet him and play a song with him. Tim is a good bassist but the bass in these songs just don't really do it for me, even thought in the first song he has the intro all to him self. The drums tie it all together into a little knot of music gold.
Lyrics — 7
The lyrics are in most cases what ties the album together, they have some semblance of a story going through all the songs sort of like what they will do in their future release "Phantoms On The Horizon". Tom's vocals on this CD don't leave much of a mark on here but he does tie it into the music rather well.
Overall Impression — 10
This CD was a pretty much permament fixture in my 3 CD stereo untill I bought Doppleganger. The most impressive for me was part 2 and for some of the guitar work part 4. I love this album because of the guitar, bass and drum work, the entire 3 person band is truely talented in his instrument. If this was stolen or lost I would buy 2 more.
