Sparsity is the name of the game, and Wandel tries to exploit the idea of holding everything back and then letting rip into its choruses. Jumping from a treacle of piano keys to multi-layered metallic chugs is interesting, and certainly provides a wake up call to the sleepy dithering which came before it.

This said jump from gothic loathing (piano) to gothic anger (guitar) continues in relatively predictable steps throughout the records length. Hearing this re-hash of the same theme makes an entire playback moot; it doesn’t break the album, and it certainly doesn’t define it.

5/10 Powerplay #139
