3 stars The most recent album from Swedish proggers Cross is easily the best of theirs that I have heard to date. Intricate and sometimes quite menacing (check out opener "Bleeding In Silence") with good musical interplay, all fans of modern prog will enjoy this album. A few guests add some extra touches (such as cello), but for the most part this trio rock on quite nicely with no outside help. Hansi Cross provides guitars/synths/vocals while Lollo Andersson is on bass/Taurus and Tomas Hjort is on drums.

It is very accessible album, one that can be listened to and enjoyed immediately. I nearly didn't hear the 'hidden' piece of music as the first time I played the album I turned it off when the last song ended. The next time I was too far away from the player, and after a while I heard some keyboard chords and wondered where it was coming from. I didn't see much point of this unless it was to see if reviewers were listening to the album all of the way through!! They move through one style to another very comfortably and while this may not be groundbreaking progressive music, it is very nice all the same and I for one enjoyed it.
