5 stars Great prog metal CDs are few and far between and what makes them great is always a debatable issue. Stride are a gifted band they seem to cover all areas when it comes to skill, their music is rich is melody and very well craft . Stride don't talk about slaying dragons in their lyrics the song writing approach is uplifting slightly philosophical and has a positive effect on the listener that's lasting and deeply moving. Don't expect Yes type positive lyrics (talk to the sunlight caller type lyrics) Stride are positive in a more down to earth way than that, try to imagine the song More Than A Feeling by the band Boston ... make Boston a true to form Prog Metal band with unbelievable chops that rival even Symphony x then Imagine what the result may be like get the picture ? The singer is top class when you hear his voice you will probably get goose bumps (Yes that good) think Steve Walsh in his prime Brad Delp in his prime or Steve Perry in his prime thats how good the vocals honestly are.

I think every prog fan owes it to themselves to check out Stride I have no invested interest in the band I`m just a prog fan like you that knows a great thing when I hear it. 9/10 rounded to five stars

I love this band and what they are about .... awesome !!!
