Why do I have to buy twice?
I purchased the released singles off of the full album, and now they are not showing up as purchased. It appears that the album was pulled, and re-released. Not sure if this was DT, or a mistake by iTunes, but it’s not ok to have to buy songs twice.
As for the music, it’s a 4 star effort, and their best in years. I heard the album in its entirety, and it is a mix of the melodic, guitar-centric approach of Damage Done, Fiction, Character, and their newer, keyboard dominant, progressive efforts with ethereal electronic influences like Atoma, Construct, and We are the Void, with some Projector thrown in for good measure. There are a lot of clean vocal sections, but they are well done. It is a great mix and representation of the material they have released in the last 20 years. With that being said, it’s a little choppy, all over the map sound wise, and it doesn’t flow well at times. However, I still highly recommend the album, and I don’t think fans will be disappointed unless they go into it thinking that it will be a total return to their old style.
