Its pretty great, but I dont get why he separated the tracks like that. The second song seems like it could have been separated into a couple shorter ones.

Downloaded it this morning and I've listened 3 times since. The last track is the only one that wows me, and while the rest isn't bad, it is rather uninteresting, and I think the way the tracks were separated is a hindrance without any real value.

also dem song titles. jesus.

Pretty unexpected release! I hadn't see anything about it. I'm digging the style. A good mix of all Sharp's previous Cloudkicker works.

The track separation is weird, but I take it as more of a Catch-33 kind of thing. It's all supposed to be one long piece of music so it doesn't matter where the transitions are. And it's Ben Sharp so the man can do what he wants.

I'm digging it. It's definitely more reminiscent of his older stuff, with the chugging and whatnot. In some ways it also expands on the more melodic approach like Let Yourself Be Huge. But the most impressive improvement on this album is the drum programming. It sounds so real, and that's hard to achieve with superior drummer. Trust.

I'm a big fan of his older stuff, but I think the drone aspect to his music is becoming too prevalent and on the whole, it doesn't engage you like Beacons or ]]][[[ did. I think the filler material has its place in his soundscapes, but when the hooks aren't as gripping it falls flat as a whole :/

that three minutes of nothing in the first song is really annoying.

Yea it's on par with most of his releases. As a working musician, he is pretty inspiring. The amount of material and the quality is so impressive.

Though, it's hard for me to defend the 3 minutes of silence to begin the album. No one wants to listen to that. but i guess he can do what we wants since I paid a dollar.
