"the chords and the soaring keyboards lies, well, not much of anything worth mention"

*mentioning


Either one is correct.

"Aside from the wayward spoken-word passage to cue the listener"

*comma after wayward


Pretty sure it doesn't need a comma.

"while the melodies offer a quick fix for when the instruments don’t seem to want to go anywhere."

*remove "for" and "want to"


Fixed

"There is a lot here that is decent to good, but precious little that rises above that."

*not sure what was intended by "precious". Consider revising.


Are you a native English speaker? Saying "precious little" is a fairly common thing.

"So as a concept album this look rather dismal,"

*looks


Fixed

"If only it were so."

*Sentence should use a subject matter to draw reference to the previous sentence besides "it". Consider "If only such a pronouncement were so.


Will figure something out. Thanks for pointing all that out.

I am. I've never heard of the term/phrase. My apologies.

"Thanks for pointing all that out."

The album cover is pretty cool, sad to hear that the concept didn't work however.

The one track I heard reminded me of Type O negative a bit. I'd probably enjoy this but the cheese levels are off the scale.

Why couldn't they just make this album sound like ghost of loss?

Can't believe you gave this a 2.5/5. I thought on bias alone it would have been like a 4/5? hahahaha
