4 stars The stamps of Alex Liefson sensibility is all over the place on this release that you can swear he has done more than working on the arrangements and the recording of this release. It's a guitar oriented album with folk, exotic (flamenco) flavors on the light side and on the heavy side, it's more classic rock and heavy rock oriented. The Rush's influence is coming from the latest period of the Canadian band. Some guitars riffs are reminiscent of Steve Howe with the use of the steel guitar, and at times Jimmy Page, but you can also hear some guitars structures similar to the band Anathema. The versatility of the guitars is completed with bass, including the moog Taurus pedals, and a nice rhythm section, which is not as strong as Neil Peart, but has some delicate complexity. The album is instrumental except on the song "Belmonte". This is a nice release with plenty of beautiful compositions that is promising for the future of the band, a second album is about to see the day.
