I'm really enjoying the "ambient" aspect of this. Considering this Zero Hour with keyboards (like the original ZH material?) is really an over-simplification. In actuality, and don't let this scare you off, there are more "quiet" and low-key moments on this CD than any ZH disc... But there are at least 2-3 tracks that are, not surprisingly, very ZH in heaviness, song composition and style. So it's actually more akin to Zero Hour on mushrooms... Ultimately, the lighter side of things and the low-key (ie: melodic/atmospheric) moments are highlights for me. The heavy tunes are great as well, but I'm really digging the sparseness and the lightness of the material in spots. ZH has alway had dynamics, and this is really no exception, only a bit more obvious. The vocals are way out front and with strong melodies, this is a good thing. And there's also shredding when required, but overall, it's a very solid, cohesive and song-oriented record to be listened to - not song by song - but as a whole, the entire way through. My only qualm? It's too short.
