Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (16 Votes)

Obnoxious prog-rock yanking that tries to simultaneously dry-hump Dream Theater and Lacuna Coil. The vocals are good but undistinguished, sounding a lot like Simone Simon without her lovely tone. The music is just a bunch of simpering alternations between double-bass and jerky, weird time shifts that serve no songwriting purpose except to say "Hey! We're proggy and shit!" The songs have no tension, build, or resolution, and they simply lurch from part to part both aimlessly and smugly. The infusion of poppy melodies and lounge-music influence is no help at all. I know To-Mera have a distinguished pedigree, but this is still crap.
