4 stars It seems that whenever a band has a vocalist that has a lot of "soul" or "sings from the gut" they are quickly given the AOR tag. I´m not saying that there isn´t an AOR sound at times, but to dismiss a band because they have strong melodies and a vocalist that puts the "rock" into progressive rock is wrong.

If you like the vocalists of Kansas and Enchant, you will really like Todd Plant´s voice. The guitarist is also impressive on this album and delivers some stunning solos throughout this album. Actually the entire band are class A musicians and you can hear each instrument clearly (the bass isn´t lost in the mix but is clear and intricate)

The lyrics are another strong point in Cryptic Vision´s songwriting, although they are spiritual lyrics they are never "Bible punching, in your face" preaching. Listening to this album and I can hear the strong Kansas and ´70´s Prog influence. To really appreciate this album I suggest listening to it through a pair of good headphones.

Strong songwriting, strong melodies, excellent lyrics and excellent musicians!
