If De-loused In The Comatorium was the Volta’s In The Court Of The Crimson King, then this one is their In The Wake Of Poseidon (hell, it even sounds like later day Emerson, Lake and Palmer!), sort of like the former but not as good, kinda transitional, very wanking on the instruments but, over all, derivative and sorta unoriginal, like if they kept thinking “we’re like King Crimson and Pink Floyd on fast forward, that’s innovative enough, right? Let’s just play longer songs and have 20 solos in each one of them”. Hope this is just a bump in the road and they get to Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, Red and Discipline very soon.
