This approach makes the album a bit unpalatable, although the wild stylistic swings from circus music and violin tunes to steel can beating and noise are impressive in many ways. Before you have time to adjust to the new setting, Pimentola has already moved on to something else.
Having displayed his palette in this way, Salo will no doubt restrict his mode of expression and strengthen his focus. With talents like this, we have something to look forward to.
Oh, and for those in the know, Salo is also responsible for the stylish artwork of the digipak, which is a bit different from the usual CMI style.
