3 stars This would be the last LANDMARQ record that Damian Wilson would sing on, as he would go on to join THRESHOLD. This record was produced and engineered by Clive Nolan and mixed by Karl Groom.

Things get started with "Cutting Room" an uptempo tune with Damian's strong vocals. "Pinewood Avenue" is a light, catchy song with the focus on the drums and keys. I like it. "Infinity Parade" opens with a nice piano melody, and the sound builds, great vocals too. "Came Over" is a light breezy tune with some orchestration and lots of keys. "All Performers Stand Alone","Ten Million And One" and "Bed Of Nails" are all ok, nothing to write home about though.

"Narovlya" is an 11 minute song about the nucleur accident at Chernobl. The lyrics were taken directly from a letter written by a kindergarden teacher at a nearby town. Her words were translated and made into this song. She describes in detail how it impacted the people, landscape and life of her and her people and of course the children.This song alone is worth the purchase of this record.The other really good song is "Hanblechia (the vision quest)". The song is taken from the Sioiux natives and opens with organ that is joined by a guitar melody as the organ continues. This is an instrumental with vocal melodies that create a beautiful soundscape. The singers are Damian, Tracy Hitchings and Clive Nolan. Some good guitar in this one as well.

Of the first three LANDMARQ records the first one "Solitary Witness" is the best, of the last two it's a toss up.
