4 stars I have been rarely disappointed with a instrumental Progressive Rock album. This is another instrumental band and this their second album. The opener and title track of 17 minutes show you what the band can do best with plenty of groove and a nice rhythm section supported by a good dose of piano. We can hear flash of King Crimson and the Us band Discipline with a dark mood finishing in a furious pace with some heavy guitars. The second song is a complete change of mood with that bluesy feel and Hammond organ. In "Dusta Nova", the guitar is leading with drums and piano building the melody slowly and with some repetitive pattern, almost spacey atmosphere. "Utopia Planitia" has a flute intro with a beat that is growing slowly before a guitar solo break to get to some heavier and faster pace. I am again seduce by that drums that play a duel with the piano, the guitar is at it's most heavy on this song. This is the most complex and intense song of the cd with some unpredictable twists. The last song is a lighter song with some special guitar effects. This is another good cd, the long tracks being of high caliber, i can tolerate some less greatness in the short tracks.
