Big to do - about not that much
After the rich palate that was Brighter Than Creation's Dark I was looking forward to this. However, the DBTs have elected to rock out this time, with a rough, raw production that buries both the nuances and the lyrics. As the later are often one of the DBTs great strengths it an odd decision. After a few listens few of the songs stand out. Don't get me wrong DBT can rock - Lookout Mountain is one of my favourites of theirs. But there is nothing here to stand comparison with that. Perhaps these songs will improve if we get to hear them live, and rumour has it there is another album on the way soon. But this feels like a missed opportunity.
