Staff review by

What do you do with a Tool? For sake of metaphor let's be more specific; what does one do with, say, a wrench? Well you fasten things with it, make sure all those nuts and bolts are surely fixed in position. And what's the purpose of this? Obviously to make whatever these nuts and bolts are a part of work at an optimal and functional state. The debut collaborative effort of supergroup Soen is something which does just that.

  I want this! Really! If this can remind Tool, i'm in! \m/-.-\m/ and the cover is one of the best covers i've ever seen in my life!

Rating: 9 Absolutely amazing album, will probably end up being one of my favorite albums this year.

  The vocal is very weak i guess despite of trying to sing like mikael akerfeldt

He sounds more like an Åkerfeldted Maynard.

Rating: 9 Can't deny their musicianship. as for's their debut album and IMO they shouldn't get bashed for sounding like Tool, 'cause it takes too much effort to exactly sound like them.
I'm waiting for their next material since they seem to have a potential.

Rating: 8 This are very well done, in every way, but it's TOOL-metal,nothing else. I think no band should emulate such a distinctive sound to this degree, it makes them but very skilled copycats. Still it is very listenable, I can't argue. I agree on the above on the Åkerfeldt comparison. To me he has an Åkerfeldt or Renkse voice ( typical swedish voice!) trying and accomplishing, to sing like Maynard. The main difference is, that like the two swedes he sings in the same mid-range constantly, whilst Maynard challenges his chords a lot more.

definitely ! i'm really sorry about him, actually this album doesn't even deserve 8.2

Rating: 10 Well, since Tool most likely won't create a new album I welcome a band like this with open arms. Superb sounding, like Tool but even better.

Don't know about that Check out Karnivool for more inspired Tool withdrawal music.

can't agree more!

Rating: 6 It's totally not a bad album, but what annoys the most about their songs is that they are started out very well with awesome intros but then they somehow are left unfinished without reaching somewhere. And the vocals are the weakest side of the album.
