4 stars Timeless.

A beautiful gem of a record, Timeloss is an expressive portrait by a criminally underrated band, Paatos. This record is sublime, exquisite, a delicacy of modern prog that would humble many of the classic bands of the past. As others have said, fans of Landberk and experimental sounds capes will thoroughly enjoy this. However, it is not so much Paatos's experimental progressive aspect, but there keen sense of song and structure that makes their passages so breathtaking and extraordinary.

Take for example, the soft and jazzy Hypnotique, which builds on Petronella's vocals, a delicate piano and flute into a mellotron passage that sparks a vast array of emotions within you. The closing of the song is powerful and uplifting. Many of the music acts in a similar manner. It is both reflective and challenging, and words like gorgeous come to mind as the instrumentations ebbs and flows.

Enough with the extra adjectives, just get the damn thing. It's an excellent experience you won't regret, even if you're an old hag who only listens to the 70's stuff. If you don't believe me look at long standing collab Sean Trane's glowing review. It's a wonderful find.
