5 stars The Road Is Clear and Words Remain Unsaid.

Is less than Part I? Some consider it slightly behind the great first part. But what if this would have seen the light before?

The reality, for me, is that both are essential and seamless. Obviously there are sections better than others, but nothing sounds boring or banal. And besides, there is a smart and accurate connection throughout the work. I think they are best seen as two complementary works, and you need not compare to compete with each other.

East Coast Racer begins this part of superb form, musically and lyrically. And also, Curator of Butterflies is a stunning and unbeatable conclusion of this part and the whole work. In the meantime, five worth songs at the height of the rest.

I welcome the choice of modern groups like Big Big Train, Moon Safari, Gazpacho, Moonrise, Phideaux, Airbag, Anubis, Autumn Chorus, Paatos, Tangent, Millenium among others, to run a witty progressive rock, elaborate, without the need for loud noises , and pointless. The music continues to be interesting and a good dose of energy here and there.

4,5 stars.
