From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Consisting of 6 instrumental tracks of varying length which I will outline below.

Track 1. Death of a Nation : 22.33 mins. Moving from blues to rock to psychadelic to acoustic, and finishing off on a raucous, but melodic, note. This track has a little bit of everything with some very tasty guitar and keyboard work throughout..

Track 2. The Time Between : 05.38 mins. a gentle respite of flowing dreamy pianos and clean guitars which follows on nicely from track 1.

Track 3. Resurrection : 16.19 mins. The title track begins with some solo fingerpicking acoustic guitar in the style of Steve Hackett before moving into an equally Hackett - esque atmospheric intro which would have easily fitted into the Spectral Mornings album.

From there it follows a vaguely similar format to the opening track, moving from straight forward rock to a Wakeman/Howe style atmospheric section of dreamy keyboards and clean swelling guitars to finally finish with a long ambient passage, again with some very nice lead work and big sounding keys.

Track 4. Pink Moon Rises Pt 2 : 05.44 mins. Keyboard intro moving into orchestrated 12 string guitar section, and finishing off with a very definite nod to Pink Floyd in their more accessible moments. If you like the guitar work in Comfortably Numb, this is kind of similar - big solo played in simple pentatonics with a very big sound : lovely stuff.

Track 5. Seagulls : 02.39 mins. Shortest track on the album, built around fingerpicking guitar and fretless bass with a little bit of dreamy flute work in the middle.

Track 6. End Piece : Closing track, again built around acoustic guitar with that same dreamy piano which was exhibited on track 2. There's a nice sort of backwards atmospheric guitar break in the middle of this.

a nice collection of instrumentals from a relative newcomer to the genre and well worthy of addition to any collection.

Psion | 4/5 |
