Look, I love a good riff as much as the next guy. Unfortunately, that's all this pike is- riff after riff after riff. They can be outstanding (see tracks 1, 2, 4, and 5) but it's just not very interesting to listen to. These don't sound like complete "songs." The second half is pretty draggy, too. 2.3
One of the heaviest Pikes releases so far. If you like the heavy stuff like "Cuckoo Clocks of Hell" or "Island of Lost Minds" you will probably love this one. Some of the tracks have awesome riffs. Others are a bit too repetitive for my taste, especially towards the end of the album.
