I liked this album a lot, but it didn't touch me emotionally. Vocals tend to be very serious and professional, lacking that intimavy and sincerety Neo-Prog MUST have in it very ground! The songs, rather short, are too complex for the genre. Then, you can say, this is probably a Symphonic Prog CD. No, I'll answer, this is still Neo - but bordering Symphoni in many aspects. One can even notice a violin's (a programmed one I believe) solos, very tasty and well-fit here. Unfortunately, the band doesn't concentrates on melodical and catchy moments Neo has always been proud with, and frequently rushes into long complex jams almost a-la DREAM THEATER or related contemporary bands. Not much MARILLION here, as I've been told. Anyway, this compilation definetely DESERVES TO BE HEARD !!! Recommended for all Neo/Sympho devotees - I hope, you'll like it more than me ;)
