I decided to review this album motivated by a thread i saw today about this band, wich reminded me how amazing they are. This band truly could be from Mars, the way they managed to create sounds is beatiful and you can really feel like if you are traveling in space.

The music is a symphonic feast, passionated and original, but you can still hear some similarities with some people like Jarre and Tangerine Dream in the electronic aspect with some Mark Kelly and Jordan Rudess touch, Camel in the feeling of the guitar and flute and of course Jethro Tull in the more folkish way of playing flute.

Every sound, every note is right in place, and all instuments are coordinated very well and heard clearly as crystal (i'm taking about musicianship, not the quality of the recording), and the development of the songs is marvelous. I can´t talk much about each song individualy because they are intrumental songs very much alike some of them from each other, but instead listening the album track by track i rather enjoy it as a full story.

I´m not familiar with Hungarian Prog scene, having heard only Omega and After Crying, but without a doubt i can say that this band is one of the best of that country, and i hope to discover some others like this.

4.5 stars

Viva el Prog!
