4 stars This is the debut album from one extremelly talented band from the good old Germany-RELOCATOR!It was a huge surprise for me to discover such mature song writting and musicianship for a band that I've never heared about it!!Definitelly,a great musical discovery and something to dig deep in time!What I really like to this band is the fact that the accent is not put on the technical skills,which are already impressive,but it's on the composition and atmosphere!If we try to find a conection between RELOCATOR with LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT or PLANET X-that's useless,because the 2 American bands are more focused on the technical sparks and wizardries than on the composition!!RELOCATOR managed to get in work the keyboard wizard DEREK SHERINIAN himself to put his genius print on this wonderful album,ant that's a brilliant achievement !!The use of the violin is another excellent thing,and that makes the album even more spectacular,complete and complex!The timing of the tracks is quite long,2 of them are more then 10 minute and only one is a little longer then 5 minutes,so that's plenty of time to express generous musical ideas in long compositions,with an unique atmosphere and flavour!!There are many igreat ideas in RELOCATOR's music,the listener is invited to a wonderful musical journey,and even being instrumental,the album offers great audio landscapes and images to it's listeners!Wonderful booklet presentation too,with superbe photos!Excellent production aswell and nice sound for this marvelous music,an album of more than 1 hour playing time,but with no weak track or weak moments-that's trully rare!Congratulations for an outstanding album and the promise for more great music in the future,that's for sure-4.5 stars for me!
