3 stars There is much that has been said on the reviews for their first two albums, however, there is a marked improvement in quality, a more mature sound, the fourth track The Seventh Year has an awesome guitar solo introduced with the minimal of vocals over lush keyboards. Unfortunately the 'GM Midi Power Drum Set' sound is still too prevalent.

Far more complex, eklectic and even hectic, this album does show the progression made as a group, perhaps the additional muscians have made that difference?

The avany garde approach is perhaps a little off putting at times, but the muscianship is never in question, nor the melodies when present. As with the previous reviews I give this a 3 star rating but with the proviso that Arena, Nolan and Pendragon followers add at least one more star.
