4 stars Interesting. That's the word that comes to mind thinking about this artist. I mean: look at his discography ! This man has had a very productive career and he is not even 100% progressive and that makes him even more versatile and interesting. In my favourite music store they placed an album by him under new age. I stated at that moment that he was supposed to be progressive but the salesman said: not this album, this is entirely different. I can't remember which album it was, he made quite a lot. But it's what I mean: he is a universal artist and is intriguing because of that.

This particular album is intriguing too. To me this is pure prog, high standard composing and execution resulting in a wonderful album. At first I picked out the longest track (2nd door) for my mp3 and so I know that one best. I loved it immediately, the music is kind of quiet, very melodic and very suitable as background music but meant in the most positive way possible. When I decided to check out all the other tracks I was anxious to discover they couldn't live up to the magnificent 2nd door but suprisingly they did. At least almost. The whole album is in the same style, to me that was a plus because it's a very soothing style. You have to be in the mood for this but when you are it's more than an enjoyable listen for over 50 minutes.

With all this positive information it will be no surprise I value this with 4 stars. Very well deserved !
