5 stars Another great progalbum, heavily damaged by the purplefloydfish, waeguk, daemacho, evolver and marfish lot. In my opinion it takes lots of courage in these days to mention the genocide of over one and a half million Christians by the hands of an islamitic state. Today we have the sad tale of the Jazidi people in Iraq, murdered and persecuted by the henchman of IS, so I think nothing has been learned from the tragedy suffered by the Armenian people by the hands of the Young Turk government now almost 100 years ago.

Life Line Project have perfectly succeeded in capturing the desolation and sadness of this tragic event. The themes chosen are all suffused with feelings of melancholy and abandon. At the same time feelings of hope and resurrection are evoked. The deepest night is reached in "The March" with hammering drums accompanying a desolate and very dissonant mellotron theme, ending in a simple piano chord evoking resignation and hope. The vocals, by Marion Brinkman, are also well-chosen and sung emotionally, but introverted. Probably the most captivating song is "Exile" in which hope is expressed, sung simply but so beautifully over the accompaniment of a grand piano only. A new hope and a new existence are evoked in "Jerevan", a grand finale, full of jubilant keyboards.

The other compositions are all a welcome addition to the main composition. They all show the same warmth and emotion of both the music and the vocals. "Let Your OUtside Show Me" and the beautiful introverted "Moment" are masterpieces.

One can only hope, that the future will give us more peace and less hatred and murdering, but the present time makes my heart shrink and fill with fear of the future. It seems the world is getting madder every day. Meanwhile Life Line Project have delivered with "Armenia" a magnificent piece of progressive rock.
