4 stars After a promising debut, the band is back with his second album. There is no less than four keyboards musicians and that should give you a idea to what to expect in the overall sound of the music. The presence of the keyboards with some nice melody lines is what we have after the intro song. The melody is building slowly with multi-part vocals. The tempo get faster with the guitar of Michel St-Père of Mystery matching the keyboards at the end. In the song "Insane", the bass has the opportunity to shine with a keyboard solo. "The Man on the Hill" is heavy and sound like a copy of Arena style, the sound of the vocals are very close to Paul Manzini. The guitar is very busy here. In "Memories", the melody is carried by the keyboards again that are shining before a David Gilmour's guitar passage at the end. The album end with another take on the Arena's epic type of song that starts like a ballad but continue with some big symphonic parts. Those who enjoy the Neo Prog bands with a heavy edge and lot of progressive stuff will have to check this one out. The album sounds heavier than the first one and the production is clear which makes this more enjoyable to listen. Only the strait forward song "Red Gypsy" doesn't have the same quality of the rest of the album,
