4 stars This may have been a tricky album to record, after all it was 5 years and a line up change plus serious illness (Spencer Luckman). However, this certainly is a powerful album, well put together and certainly their most bombastic to date. Starting off with a female choir, the track bursts into life with a shout of DEFIANCE, from then on it's pretty heavy stuff, certainly by their standards. Standout tracks for me are If I could be God and the title track, although there's no weak tracks at all, great lyrics, superb vocals and it makes a very satisfying album to listen to in one sitting. Having heard some of these tracks played live, they come across even more powerful and certainly impressed me. This album is recommended to anybody who likes quality heavy prog with meaningful songs and no musical masturbation! I hope this albums gets as wide an audience as it deserves.
