Album of the Day

Brutal Architecture, by Rocket Scientists (1995): Film critics often seem to really hate lots of movies that do well at the box office. Not just rate them as poor, but affirmatively bad. I think one reason for the disconnect between critic and audience is that critics see so many movies, so many of which aren't worth that much, that they vent on some decent pieces of entertainment a little more than they should. Why do I mention that? Because I think my review of this album years ago kind of fit in that category. It's a perfectly enjoyable slice of neo/symph prog, with some really tasty keyboard bits. Often times, that's good enough, but sometimes not good enough to stand out from the crowd.
