4 stars The sophomore release from this US-based prog metal band won't be to everybody's taste; but many will appreciate it's qualities.

It's a concept album; in a style slightly reminding of Dream Theater and Symphony X at times - but not sounding like either of those overall. The approach is perhaps less progressive; although quirky drum patterns and some odd and eerie soundscapes are created by use of keyboard layers here - the plethora of style and pace changes to be found in many prog metal tunes are replaced with effects and more subtle elements on this release - while the overall structure is more straight forward.

What makes or breaks this album are the mood pieces scattered throughout though, put in to enhance the storyline some will love the overly dramatic happy amateur approach on these, while others will find them overly cheesy.

I liked them as well as the album as a whole - but recommend the curious to check it out further before purchasing.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
