CD Reviews

And Then There Were Two...
Kirk Lott | adrift on the seas of life | 08/17/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"On its first two albums, Citizen Cain was a five piece band consisting of crack musicians. Those albums are absolute pinnacles of 90s progressive rock, reminiscent of and as excellent as early 70s Genesis.

On Stones, the band for unknown reasons cut back to two members. And just as when Genesis started thinning its ranks, the results are diminished proportionately.

There's no structure to the album (not even the song titles) and narry a hook to be found. Further, there's a weird evil soaked in it: I always felt giant, plague-carrying ravens would start pecking at my eyeballs if I listened to it.

Buy 'Serpents in Camoflouge' and 'Somewhere But Yesterday' instead - 5 stars each."
