The Act of Letting Go starts out promisingly with a mult-instrumental loop pedal esque mix. Song two slides into a cool computer game midi soundtrack, like on Alien Breed when you set an alarm off or something. But there's something about the vocals that kick in after half a minute which ruin things and I must admit they let down the whole album for me from then on. The dude can sing but it doesn't quite fit. It's a bit too poppy and even Disney. Need more direction - either be a cool/weird multi instrumentalist or write pop songs - the two don't mix.
