4 stars I have to say that I was very surprised to see such low rating for this album! It might not be very progressive, but I've always found many of the songs to be VERY catchy and pretty. Maybe it's the lack of originality that people don't like, or maybe it's mostly the Christian lyrics. I personally don't put any weight into lyrics, so that's not a problem for me.

I'd say that if you like accessible and VERY catchy light-prog, this album is for you! I don't usually like "simple" music, but songs like The Promised Land, Sword of Goliath and Holy Spirit Fire have always stayed in my head even though YEARS have gone between listening to this album. I can't help but sing along!

And then we have the epic closing track, On the Threshold of Eternity, which is at times VERY moving, more so than most epics composed by more popular prog bands. I don't like the word "underrated", but I'd still like to use it on this occasion!
