Prog Reviewer
5 stars This is a smashing mix of some new and interesting prog metal with all sorts of elements of prog rock, classical piano, and atmospheres. Most of the album isn't metal, but all sorts of lighter rock accented by classical style piano, eventually leading into what metal there is. And the metal itself is some rather interesting and driving stuff, often made without the guitar actually being a part of it. This record is a masterfully done surprise that drifts in heaven with only short but powerful plunges into hell. "Overture" and "Describing The Paradox" are a cut above the other two tracks, with all being varied and excellent. In the end, not so much recommended to prog metal fans due to the lack of metal, but recommended all around - just be careful of the screams and growls the vocalist pulls out at one point.
