5 stars You know when you hear a CD and it just goes BANG and you instantly love it?

Well, this one does it for me.

I cannot really extend in my description of the music beyond the excellent critique given by st.vitusdance. Read that review first.

This CD takes you back to the heyday of 70s prog but somehow retains a modern feel.

To compare to any other modern offering may be slightly misleading but the taking of an old style and giving it a modern 'feel' is similar to the Tangent's excellent 'A Place in the Queue'.

This is my record of 2006 by a country mile and I heartily recommend it.

5 stars should be sparingly given but this deserves it.
