5.0 classic
Mark Hollis Mark Hollis
Scott Walker The Drift
Regarding Nick Butler's claim that this is "Tilt, part 2" and that it doesn't really cover any new ground - I don't really understand how he came to that conclusion. The Drift does pick up on elements introduced on Tilt (Mostly in the track The Cockfighter, which was the darkest and harshest track on the album) but takes them to new levels of extremity. The album Tilt had a sense of unease and harshness under the surface that felt like it could burst out at any time, only really doing so in the Cockfighter and very briefly in "Face on Breast"; "The Drift" puts it on full display.

2.5 average
Devin Townsend Project Deconstruction
Opeth Heritage
Opeth make an unnecessary tribute album. As if the majority of the post 70s "progressive rock" scene wasn't already referential and steeped in enough cliche. The last thing we need is another throwback.

2.0 poor
Blut Aus Nord 777 - Cosmosophy
There's nothing noteworthy about this album whatsoever. Bland guitar, dull fake drums and forgettable emotionless cleans. It isn't challenging, it isn't experimental; it's just dull.
