3 stars I only came across this band recently, they are a mixture of art rock with hints of metal with some occasional Glass Hammer-like keyboards. This is their most recent album released in 2005 and gives you 80 odd minutes of music including 3 20-minute epics in "Came the Healer", "Motherland" and "Ode to Man". The music itself is reminiscent of other US prog bands such as Salem Hill and the afore-mentioned Glass Hammer, so will appeal to fans of those two bands. The bass sound is a bit "plonky", much like Glass Hammer's "The Inconsolable Secret" but generally the sound and production is good, albeit occasionally a bit "dry", and the band are all excellent instrumentalists. The vocals are of good quality. The music varies from the short acoustic number "Between Images Flesh and Shadows " to the tongue-twistingly titled "Precariously Poised on the Precipice of Pandemonium" which is a good riffy number, to the 3 epics.

Whilst there's nothing startling original here, you get strong melodies and instrumental flair and, as I said, it should appeal to all fans of the US "AOR" prog school.
