4 stars So often scared away from bands that wear the neo-prog tag as a 'tribute' to the various 1970's prog acts, I first listened to the title track "Empires Never Last" from a magazine CD expecting the worst.

Although unmistakably proggy in its scope, structure, and great musicianship, it has a much more up to date (almost prog-metal) sound that is instantly satisfying to those who know what good rock sounds like. The album contains some really catchy hooks some quiet moody moments, and an equal number of rock symphony moments.

I've tried listening to Galahad before, and the listen was ok but hardly worth forking out my hard earned cash for. This is, by far, the best Galahad CD I have listened to, and would recommend it to anyone who likes Arena, Threshold and the like.

Highpoints are 'I could be God', 'This Life Could be the Last', 'Sidewinder', and of course the title track.

Buy the CD, sit in your most comfortable chair, turn off the lights and turn the volume up to 11...
