Mental Home - _Upon the Shores of the Inner Seas_
(Century Media / The End, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
The most appreciative quality about Russia's Mental Home is not the fact that that their music is chock-full of many sounds and styles, one time going the melodic metal route, the next taking on a doom/gothic sound backed by searing keyboards. The music is well done and very complex, and while many critics and fans like them, I am beginning to see a loose grip of material take over their sound. They expend too much time working on shape-shifting their music here to make it a solid listen throughout. Highly potent at times, but still missing the mark by a small distance in my books. Choice cut: "Breakdown".
