Tara Comments

level   (90/100)
이런 밴드는 더욱 더 빛을 봐야 한다

전작과 함께 이들을 대표하는 앨범. 변화무쌍한 리프와 리듬전개는 역시 압수의 전매특허같은 특징.
level   (85/100)
잘 짜여진 변화무쌍한 스래쉬적인 리프 구성 + 드럼 섹션의 다채로운 패턴 활용이 이 앨범의 가장 큰 장점. 하지만 기억에 남는 리프나 멜로디라인이 잘 없다는게 아쉽다. 감상 초점을 조금 더 구성쪽으로 옮겨야 재미를 느낄듯? 정말 잘 만들어진 앨범
level   (70/100)
Pillars of Mercy에 뿅갔던 기억이 난다~ but 전체적으로 마음에 들진 않는다.
level   (90/100)
Absu의 진가가 드러나는 앨범.
