First a complaint: most of the songs, specially the best ones, are not that distinguishable from each other---musically. Now the praise: still, every song is a further advance on the PTL sound. The distinctness, the originality still remains dominant. At times you hear base-lines reminiscent of the now trendy "NY sound", whole structures that reek "Buzz Bin" but its the fact these are integrated into the PTL sound that gives them such fresh air. And of course, lyrically PTL in untouchable. Lyrically the is the best PTL album. The unfortunate over-the-top Christian discourse of the earlier albums is now, as with 'Control', gone. In are darker, more reflective lyrics. Suicide, dismemberment, cowardnes, convinient "faith", unwanted children... life, gets masterfully treated 'Transatlantisism', 'I Do', 'Simple Plan' (all strung together) are smply the best you'll hear this year. You'll certaintly have a good laugh the next time you listen to commercial radio and hear what those TRL bands are sounding and singing about. Had the songs been mixed more distinguashible this would have been the perfect album.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
