3 stars ADVENT are the GENTLE GIANT of our decade for sure and that's how GENTLE GIANT would sound if they were a nowadays band...Very melodic music, really progressive to the bone with lot of emotional vocal lines...At times they remind me also of the more mellow moments of SHADOW GALLERY coming out of their debut album and also of another excellent US band, AJALON...The tracks generally do not differ very much, the GENTLE GIANT influence is obvious almost in every note...We can also listen to some excellent flute work in the epic of the disc ''Your healing hand'' which unfolds fast and easily due to its accesible and melodic musicianship...Fans of vocal oriented, melodic, GENTLE GIANT-ish music will just fall in love with ADVENT's work...True rating: 7/10, a very good, harmonic and enjoyable addition to any prog collection...
