Yeah besides the kickass solos that song seems like the least good from this.

For now I think I like this just as much as Grace For Drowning, if not more.

Grace for Drowning was alright, but the length was just such a put off I'm never in the mood to go back and listen. This was nice and compact.

Yeah, it's good he cut down on the length this time. I really liked Grace For Drowning but I generally just listened to it one disc at a time.

Conceptually not as strong as GFD, but wow are there some good individual songs on here. Track by

track (for me):







1) The Watchmaker

2) Luminol

3) The Raven That Refused To Sing

4) Drive Home

5) The Pin Drop

6) The Holy Drinker



Watchmaker & Luminol is some of the best music SW has written. The title track is also superb. Drive

Home and The Pin Drop are great as well. But the worst track, for me personally, has got to be the

Holy Drinker. Nowhere near as strong as the other tracks and just feels proggy for the sake of being

proggy.



Solid 8.5/10

What Kill said, this is a very good introduction to some much better classic stuff imho.
