Another Snakes & Arrows review

Mon, Mar 26, 2007@1:28PM | comments removed/disabled

This latest review of Snakes & Arrows is a doozy; very long and very detailed; much more so than the last one. Oh my ... this album sounds like it's going to kick some major ass. You'll definitely want to read the whole thing, but here's the summary:

... 'Snakes & Arrows' is a powerful album which in striving to be contemporary is possibly a little heavier and a touch more cluttered than it needed to be. Neil Peart's heartfelt lyrics are impressive throughout, and Geddy Lee's vocals suggest a new maturity. Above all the band find room to jam out enthusiastically, but in occasionally over egging the arrangements and sometimes falling in between the Prog Rock, Space Rock and melodic Metal genres, 'Snakes & Arrows' might be a CD that seeks to consolidate rather than break new ground.

Thanks to reader deraxeman for the heads up.
