Reseña de álbum

Manic Impressions is a significant step forward from Anacrusis' first two albums, tightening and focusing the songwriting and honing their instrumental work to a razor-sharp edge. That alone would be enough to make them stand out in the progressive metal subgenre — often criticized for the same excesses as '70s progressive rock, substituting technical flash and aimless "extended" structures for substance and songcraft — but what's even more impressive is the emotional depth of the album. Manic Impressions is a study in depression and mental instability, its bleak lyrical worldview grounded in everyday reality and enhanced by the icily clear production and the mechanical precision of the complex compositions. Vocalist Kenn Nardi's ability to leap between growling rage and ethereal melodicism — sometimes in the same lyric line — is complemented by the band's new-found grasp of dynamic shifts, which heighten the songs' dramatic impact.

Plagued with poor distribution and isolated from the thriving speed metal communities on either coast, they were often said to be ahead of their time by enthusiastic critics, but it seems that their eclectic style simply shot over most listeners' heads.
