2 stars 2.5 stars. When you hear the opening of "Myopia" you would think your listening to Prog-Metal, heavy drums and bass with guitar riffs, but as they die out in comes acoustic guitar and vocals.The heaviness does come back though in this memorable opening song. "Imago" is a gentle, Spanish sounding song. I like "A Short Reflection On Two Past Lives-Part one" and also "Part two" later on, they both sound great, the first with flute the later with a good guitar melody.

Now "Karma For One" has some electronica in it, which doesn't do a lot for me. "Perfection Personified" is ok. "Bug Eye" has a good chorus with an electronica sound most of the time. "Ocean Blue" has smooth vocals with more electronica, sounding a lot like the PET SHOP BOYS. Yikes ! "Rejuvenation" is a good song, spacey with synths and a female vocal melody. "Easier Said Then Done" not so good. The last tune "Shine" is great for 4 minutes, problem is the song is 14 minutes long.

This was a big disappointment for me. I wasn't expecting the dance sounds of electronica to be so prevelent, a definite change from their earlier stuff.
