From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars IMO, for such a lyrically rich album and excellent guitarist, the only let down is the vocalist. Paul Wrightson sounds like he has come straight from a theatrical background and has not adapted his vocals to the genre. Very well constructed concept album (obvious dues paid to PF 'track 10 Serenity') with soaring guitar and excellent keyboard by Clive Nolan and a high production standard, I cannot help thinking that had they considered the type of vocalist they were going to use for the overall dynamic, this album could have reached a much wider audience because there are songs on this album that had the capacity to do that.
