2 stars Yep the Ninth GH studio effort and their last to date. Er... they've suddenly produced a TURKEY! The cover of a Yes track which is on one of the worst yes albums and one of the worst tracks on that album is not ideal and they make it even worse! oh well, the rest of the CD is FAR TO BUSY and CLUTTERED, yes it's good muscianship, but with so much going on it's really a cacophony and it seems to me that each track is four tracks in one all trying to compete with each other. Suddenly they employ a metal guitarist (perhaps to get Dream theater/Shadow Gallery fans interested) and although some of his work is good, it just doesn't work (for me), perhaps they intend to go the whole hog and produce a prog metal cd next, who knows? This gets a TWO star because it's awful compared to Shadowlands and Lex Rex and Chronometree. Get rid of the metal guitar licks and leave that to prog/metal bands, lets hope that GH return to retro Symphonic prog next, because it;s what I expect from them and I suppose a lot of other people like me will be of the same opinion! Oh and cacophony? I'll bet God Speed fans would like this CD!
