Prog Reviewer
4 stars A great effort, if not too special, by a solid band. Rishloo have been performing a rather eclectic sort of half-light, half-metal prog, and while nothing of theirs particularly sticks out, they have been ever improving over time, continuing through this album. The lighter parts are beautiful and well done, while the metallic parts are more generic; a common problem, it seems, with a lot of metal playing bands who specialize in playing lulls. As usual, though, this still works out to be great, and Risloo's metal has unique moments. Lead single "Landmines" is the top track, with the best metal and the very best of their excellent lighter side brought forth. This is even one of the better tracks of 2014 in general. It's not lived up to so much by the rest of the record, but this is no disappointment. The opener is great, and the rest of the tracks follow as such. A solid work, Rishloo is an ever improving band, and this is a nice testament to that.
