From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars A very enjoyable pure progressive rock album comprising 5 lengthy, complex songs (well, pieces of music would be a better description). The sound is clean and crisp, the lead guitar and keyboard playing complemented by flute on a number of occasions. There are some glorious sections of music throughout the album, elsewhere it's never less than pleasant.

For older readers, this band has often been compared to Camel and Caravan. I think that is possibly because of the instrumentation used, personally I feel that compositionally they are closer to Van der Graaf Generator.

Irrespective, this is very enjoyable.
