4 stars I have all the albums by Clepsydra and I'm a huge fan. This is neoprog at it's best. I like their conceptalbums best (More Grains of sand and Alone) but this one is very good too. Only problem I have with it is that there are several songs of lower quality, not very impressive I mean, on this album. To put it simple: the shorter songs are the lesser and the longer songs are the better. This is in fact coincidence but not entirely to be honest because I tend to like the longer songs on any album. On the other hand: they usually prove to be the better songs because more time and energy are put in the longer compositions is my believe.

In this case it is very obvious: Soaked, The nineteenth Hole, Fear and especially The Missing Spark are songs of the highest quality ! It's about the best you can find in neoprog. The Cloister is also good but the other songs I usually skip when I play the album.

This is also an important difference with the two conceptalbums by Clepsydra: they are great as a whole and this is why I can't give this the 5 stars, but it's almost 4.5, so 4.
