4 stars This is actually the first Leap Day album that I got, so I can't compare this album with their other works. But a true solid album it is! Just by the cover I knew this was going to be good. The head painted by the dots of the stars (Deucalion?) grabbed my attention right away. If you combine the title and the cover, then a lot of images come to mind. The cover is putting you right on place, right in the middle of cosmic turbulance and/or balance. The best artwork of 2013 without a doubt! The music is remarkably excellent, chosing a multiple set of moods fitting with the exquisite artwork. The keyboards being very present are in the capable hands of Waalkens and Van Engelenburg. Together with guitarist Mulder they've composed some really beautiful stuff! This album pleases your ears from A-Z, to me reaching climax in Llits Doots Nus Sun Stood Still, Insects, Signs On The 13th and Changing Directions.

This is a true prog gem to my ears! Tunes that you keep on humming all day long, lots of layers man only can discover by multiple listens. Just very honest and well crafted symphonic progressive music of the highest standard. Highly recommended!!
