The Protagonist - Songs of Experience
Experimental, Industrial After 'Interim' comes 'Songs of Experience' which is number three in the line. This record offers a couple of old songs and a bunch of new ones. Some of the old ones are reworked versions and I think they're all great. I found "Hesperia" which is my personal favourite, and also the first song I heard with The Protagonist, although it was a special version that wasn't on this record.

"The Sick Rose" was on a sampler from Cold Meat earlier this year so it's not a new song but it's still great. I can continue naming songs but I won't do that, I leave the rest to the listener to discover.

To be honest, I don't think it will become better than this in the year of 2005. But I know one thing; this album is on my personal top 5 list of albums this year.
