    As a long time listener of Cedric and Omars projects - I don't mind it. At times it's almost like they are trying to create a mature version of acrobatic tenement. I look forward to catching them in Australia at the soundwave festival.

    That's the thing, @lostboy-, we can't expect members from band A, who form a new band to sound the same as they did in band A... it's a different band altogether, a new beast is created. Can't stop listening to Antemasque myself. Bluesy at times, alternative at times, punky at times and a little folky at times, this album's got a lot of flavor.

    This project isn't really what I wanted from Omar & Cedric. Saying that, it's not bad, just not what most of us wanted to hear. Maybe it'll grow on me as time goes on, but for now I'll probably keep listening to TMV, Bosnian Rainbows or Omar's solo stuff as opposed to this.

    WayneBirch: I disagree with you on it not having longevity simply because of complexity.

    Either way, I'm over the moon that the two are back together and making awesome music once again.

    Ofc, they're no TMV, but it would be unfair to compare anyone, including Omar and Cedric, to TMV as TMV are the greatest band to have ever existed. Personally, I love the album but suspect it won't have the longevity of any of TMV's output due to the lack of music depth (i.e. layers and complexity).

    To those who judge the band on the record : go see them on stage. They blew me away a few weeks ago. They played a 20min version of Providence and jammed on many songs for minutes. Reminded me of these Volta years. Serisously
