|The heavy songs are some of their heaviest on this album, which reminds me of Torn. But unlike Torn, there are several ballads, and an overall heavy keyboard presence. Tom is still in fine voice although, as can be expected for a smoker and drinker, his tone has deepened over the years. You can really hear that if you listen to an early album and a later one back-to-back, but he still sounds very much like himself. To be honest, it took me a while to get into this album, where the previous two both had songs that grabbed me immediately. Tom's lyrics have the odd combination of being both quite wordy and articulate (veering toward therapy-speak in places), but also a bit awkward and not as fluent in English as they could be. Not much progress has been made in that regard since the early days, alas. Favorite tracks for me are "Forever Outsider," "Where August Mourn" (see what I mean?), "A Dandelion Cipher" (whatever that is), "In The Absence Of Sun," "Eternal Nocturnal" and "Run."
