3 years after the first release of the band, these five top musicians from Germany bring us one of their greatest albums. The god thing, it's a lesson of how to make a record that can combine melody, style and sophistication with a great dose of well distributed musical arguments.

It's an album that lyrically puts the discussion about the dogmatic beliefs on today's world and how we live with those contradictions daily (I think that VANDEN PLAS was very brave for suggesting this kind of topic, because it's not easy to talk about them, at least I see it in that way). Musically, the band plays alternating strong melodies and really inspired soft and calm music moments here and there. It's very hard to choose only one song among all, because each song complements to other and like this until ending the record.

Individually?, mmm... well, it's impossible to stand out only one musician of the five because each one of them make a brilliant work during all the album, but I liked the atmospheres created by Mr. Werno on keyboards and specially the rhythm section work (by Mr. Reichert on bass and Mr. Lill on drums).

I just have to say... great work!!!.
