4.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing change from the norm... Oct. 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a very creative and well put together album...and what else would you expect from three former members of A.T.D.I? These guys are definitely sticking to their formula which molded them into one of the most truly original sounding bands to this day. And besides, it's nice to hear something different from the watered down emo/screamo/pop-punk of today. "While oceana sleeps" could very possibly be the best song the band has ever released collectively...but don't take my word for it, just listen to "Porcelain" and you'll see how amazing this album is. So if it's so great...why not a five star rating? Because these guys are still slightly riding the genre bending coattails of A.T.D.I...but as you know 3/5 of the band is made up the latter mentioned...so who can blame them for sticking to something that works.

3.0 out of 5 stars actually 3 and a half... July 26 2004
By Timmy P
Format:Audio CD
I would have given this record three and a half stars, but amazon won't let me. Ok so when i first picked this up, it didn't really do too much for me. I mean, it sounded like Sparta, but was no where near as varied or experimental as Wiretap Scars. I kinda left it for a few days, after only giving it about 2 listens. For some odd reason, i felt like giving it another chance to sweep me away. And that it finally did. It takes a bit of getting used to, but sparta has made a cohesive album of gut-wrenching, powerful and emotional songs. You can definately tell these guys are giving it all they've got and thats what really counts. I've been listening to this record nonstop now for last 3 days and its quickly becoming one of my personal favourites. I find, though, that its better not to compare it to Wiretap Scars because, then, you would be missing the point. I beleive Sparta is continually trying to re-invent themselves and releasing another record of the same material would not do this. Porcelain is an alotgether beautiful and emotionally charged record that will definately take you on a ride, as long as you're willing to let it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great July 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought wire tap scars a few months ago and was totally blown away by the C.D. Porcelain however is much more subdued and although most of the songs are good it seems they put this album out just for the sake of putting out an album. It was almost like listening to one huge song, which some people enjoy, I on the other hand do not. This C.D. will have to tide me over until they put out another.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice album July 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wiretap Scars was amazing, and I was wary of the followup. Fortunately, Sparta knows what they're doing, focuses on developing their former sound instead of trying too hard to reinvent themselves for the new ablum, and the result is solid.
There's not much change musically, just variety, although on a whole the ablum is a lot less gloomy. So far, none of the tracks are as memorable as "Glasshouse Tarot," "Air," or "Cut Your Ribbon," but on the other hand it's also not one of those mediocre albums where every song blends together.
This album is definitely satsifying and definitely one of the best I've heard all year.
