Draco Vibration is a great melody of a song, with no lyrics, just instrumental pleasure. Itís a soothing break from the album and it refreshes the lost thoughts that go missing with so much vocals. The instrumental piece gives you depth, but doesnít outdo itself with the length, they keep it fairly short, but in the time they allow for you to hear, gives you the soothing and refreshing components that were missing previously.
Travesty as Usual, is about the only song on the album that I cannot get into. It seems to drag through the song, like it was originally created as a faster song, and they toned it down as it went on. I can't say that I enjoy it. I donít think itís a completely not enjoyable by any means since it has good guitar and great bass. I just think its too slow for my tastes in music, or rather for the rest of the album. It just doesnít fit.
Hidden Hand got its beginning in 2002, when a previous gig fell flat and one member asked some other musicians if they wanted to jam. At the start, everyone was unaware of each others talents, and went into it with open eyes and mind, bringing forth different takes on music, and different style of artistry to form what we know in 2004, as The Hidden Hand. itís a great album, and a great first effort for these men.
