Is good, that Sven Friedrich did not always relies on the charm of his voice, but this can be heard sometimes pleasantly rough and threatening. For lovers of melancholy vein, there are also a few calmer tracks, „Rise And Fall“ inspired by a wonderful melody accompanying the Sven's vocals perfectly hugs and the final song „The Pages“ is an initial piano ballad that turns into a danceable electro track. Also on this album there is again a cover version. This time it took to „One Step Closer“ von Linkin Park an. A more than successful, powerful cover which is really convincing and quite has it all. Im Original von Linkin Park, missed „Solar Fake“ the song times just so much garment elektronischeres and lots of industrial flair.
