I did not know what to expect from Esoterica. I had not seen anyone writing anything negative about them, so I looked forward hearing their latest full length effort "The Fool".
"Exposed" opens the album. The first bands that stroke my mind were Chevelle and A Perfect Circle. It is an okay song, but nothing particularly special or groundbreaking. The two following songs "Don't Rely On Anyone" and "Samples" are the two best songs.
I didn't fall in love with my favorite albums today with the first listen either. So, only to be fair, I gave "The Fool" a good couple of tries more, and listened it through yet another 5 times. But it is just too monotonous and tedious to be anything suiting my taste.
It features a good couple of industrial rock songs, but that's about it. There's nothing new, nothing special and nothing worth pointing out in the review, which is why it is show short. Simply said, it is just an average album.
