this album is a hard thing to swallow. Nucleus Torn from Switzerland
has just released an
album called “Nihil” containing music that has very little in
common with the music I love, namely
is a mixture of Progressive Rock, Folk and Classical music, and
it’s all about Cellos, Flutes and Violins and almost no guitars.
Well, I have nothing against Folk or Classical music and I find a
few Progressive Rock bands okay,
but this album is too laid back for my taste. To put it simple; I
find it too boring.
of the tracks are memorable in my humble opinion and the first time
I threw it in my player I
waited and waited for it to start and before it ever even got there,
the disc was over.
course I gave it another chance... and another, but the longer I
tried to digest this album the stranger
and more frustrating it became.
it’s just me? I don’t know. Nucleus Torn has scored several
great reviews of this album but
sadly it does not much for me.
is the first part of a trilogy and in the next few years, the
concept is to be completed by the albums
“Knell” and “Andromeda Awaiting (parts I & II).
it out and decide for yourself, please.
