Staff review by

Even if I write the review of "Themata" this year, the first album of the Australian Alternative combo Karnivool was released in 2005 in the land of kangaroos. But as you probably know it's not always really easy for a band to cross the oceans and even if it seems that Karnivool is extremely famous and trendy in Australia, they're totally unknown in Europe. Let's see if their first album will have the luck to encounter the same success in the old continent…

  Karnivool isnt really well known here. They were mentioned on the youth radio station Triple J a few times, but they didnt really get a following till there second album, and even then, it wasnt all that big.

Rating: 8 I forgot how awesome this album was. So many great moments, especially on the disc's first half.
