Tree of Stars Instead, Heart seeks not only to adequately follow up that previous success, but also to best it. And how does Failure attack this new goal? As expertly as possible.

While the music has been crafted with slick and instantly noticeable modern day production and direction, the album smartly begins with, and is littered with, nods to the past- but not in an overly reliant way. That being said, "Segue 4" kicks things off, a short intro track that inextricably entangles "Heart" with "Planet" by merits its title alone. And the first proper track, "Hot Traveler", with its strong chorus, headbang-able riffs and space-directed bridge, seems like exactly the sort of single old school fans could have been hoping to hear back in the late 90s- which is indeed a good thing, From then on, the highlights are more multifarious, and they come in a barrage: the blistering stabs of noise in "AM Amnesia", the tasteful growth into the cascading guitars that mark the outro to "Snow Angel", the primal basslines of "Petting the Carpet", and the epic build up of "Come Crashing" are just some of many stand out moments that envelope the album and push Failure's sound into more than nostalgia- and further yet into space and, for the record, aptly titled "Otherwhere" wins the title for spaciest song on the album- just get lost in those flanging, echoing guitars!

Like pretty much any album with 18 tracks even if some of them are short and enjoyable segue tracks filling gaps and holding things together , Heart does fall victim to some bloat. The first eight or nine tracks pass by with nary a hiccup to be mentioned, however, change-of-pace track "Mulholland Dr. While the most of the album is driven by enrapturing guitar and drum work, "Mulholland Dr.

Unfortunately, the other aberration in quality comes in the very next track with "Fair Light Era", which perhaps attempts to jumpstart things a little to quickly. The song's riffage, vocals, drum and synth work all feel a little to busy to really be effective, and when the song's various facets finally stop banging their heads together in their individual attempts to earn the spotlight, it ends quickly and abruptly.

    Jun 30,  · The album illustrates the maturity of the band and sounds like nothing but Failure. The album lacks a lot of the intensity of the prior two albums, I suppose 20 years will do that to a band. Ken Andrews is a master and has become something of a legend. My only critique of this record is the pristine production/5().
