4 stars This is Knight Area's second release. And it's again a very good album. IMO it's even better than their stunning debut album The Sun Also Rises, which one I loved very much.

I've bought their second album after a concert in The Netherlands where they played 5 of the 7 songs live. When I heard the songs for the first time I really enjoyed them. Since I have their album the songs have more grown too me. You here a lot of influences of Genesis and Pink Floyd, but now they have a more a own sound.

The whole album sounds a little bit heavier than their first album. There are still very beautiful melodic passages. They sound more as a band, which can be heard in the advancement of the compositions.

If you like bands like Marillion, IQ and Pendragon, I really recommend this band too you. Very melodic with some heavier passages. But you should begin with their debut album, you can hear how the band grows on their second album.
