5 stars If there's one band being an Apotheosis Of Taste it is Sieges Even. Especially this record is pure art - but one has to acquire the taste. I gave this CD so many spins I know this sophisticated stuff by heart now. Each of the tracks is worth 5 stars - maybe the title track with the string quartet is 4. The vocals are excellent - maybe not really convincing on PRIME. The drumming is beyond this world, guitar and bass are used with great effect. Other reviewers make comparisons with Rush or Fates Warning (which I can't support for this record, although Fates Warning were a huge influence on Sieges Even's album STEPS). I daresay those comparisons are a waste of time - you won't get anything precious like this record from any other band. But to give a little hint: this is not heavy music, but a rather complex intertwining of gentle melodies and some mid-hard riffs and rhythms. Delicate might be the right word. Hear for yourselves. If you don't know this release there will be a big wide hole in your prog collection. This can't be anything but 5 stars. Highly recommended; even mandatory.
