I had to check, but the songs on Hallucinations are not identical to the songs on David Usher’s last album–they just sound that way. Maybe he has a really well-developed “sound,” or maybe he hasn’t progressed as an artist at all–that all depends on whether you liked his last album.
For those unfamiliar with Usher’s work, the third track, "Numb," basically describes the effect this album has on the listener. It sounds good, but in a life-energy-sucking sort of way, so listening to Hallucinations on a rainy day is probably a bad idea.
