5 stars I wanted to do another review, but I hear this superb album and I postponed the other review to do this one instead. My reason to do that was a simple one: this album is just fantastic in my opinion. Is dark, dramatic and mysterious and of course, is prog. I cannot stop from listening to this treasure.

Old is blending with new in a beautiful musical landscape. I hear symphonic, neo prog, Canterbury, space rock, some Pink Floyd guitar solos, some Genesis moments combined with new prog rock sounds. Just beautiful! Love it!

The music is very complex with many rhythm and tempo changes and you hear this from the very beginning. I'm amazed that one song can contain so many beautiful ideas. All that is a result of band's high musicianship.

My surprise was even bigger when I saw that the band members are very young. Is a good thing that a new generation is coming with new ideas, but in the same time take best from prog rock heritage which is so vast and complex.

I don't know if these songs were sung in English were exposed to a larger audience. I suppose they lose some of the dark and mystery feeling, that is so present in this band music. I, for one, don't want that.

This is by far no.1 album for me this year. So far. But is hard to compete with that, even for the band itself. We'll see. Time will tell. My sole regret is that I'll have to wait for another album of this band. I hope my wait will be a short one.

Best songs: ALL, no weak moments here, in my opinion.
