4 stars Ah yes, another album that has been somewhat overlooked. Jonas Reingold of the Flower Kings and company created a fantastic album on their 2nd effort. The music is constantly changing throughout and their sound reminds me very much of a Transatlantic release more than that of a Flower Kings album. Every time I listen to this, it has a very uplifting feel to it. If you tend to like darker, atmospheric prog like Porcupine Tree and Riverside, this might not be for you. If you enjoy good old neo prog with the likes of Spocks Beard and obviously Flower Kings, this is a slam dunk. If we could rate by half stars, this would be a 4.5 in my book. The vocals are well done, although it did take a few listens to get used to. But make no mistake, the percussion section is on display the whole way through as Zoltan and Jonas delivered big time on this one!

If you think this is just another one of those never ending side would be greatly mistaken. I thought that for about 3 years before picking this one up. Better late than never though....4.5 stars for an incredibly well constructed album! May prog be with you....
