5 stars An album of contrasts and high production values. I heard the epic Toronto Skyline on an internet radio station and decided to check out the band.

The album is available as an uncompressed (WAV or FLAC) free download at the Aurovine site and is impressive on a decent Hi-Fi system or good quality headphones.

Unarmed At Sea, Boundaries and The Session have enough for hardened prog fans to get their teeth into. It's much more Floyd than Dream Theater so don't let the 'Crossover' labelling put you off.

As a debut, the album stands up there with some of the best and it will be interesting to see if they can follow it up with an album delivering the same impact. I would, however, like to see the boundaries (no pun intended) pushed a little in terms of putting their own stamp (or definitive sound) onto the next collection of songs.
