4 stars The album is "playful" when it comes to track names, vocal styles, experimentation and weird music movements. Dark Suns have been going more into Rock since the album "Existence", which is one of the best albums released in its year and definitely one of the top Progressive albums of this decade alongside Ark's "Burn the Sun" , Pain Of Salvation's "The Perfect Element One and Dream Theater's "Scene from a Memory". It would be easy to say that Dark Suns stand alone as an independent band with their independent style, even though they still take a lot from the old Progressive British bands like "Gentle Giant" and "Van Der Graaf Generator". The most interesting part in most tracks is the high pitch vocal lines of "Niko Knappe / Maik Knapp / Torsten Wenzel" and the vintage style drum beats and guitar tuning alongside a mild distortion effect. A major track is "Not Enough Fingers", probably the most simple track ever recorded, but with a great mood and totally addictive.
