5 stars This new adventure in the world of Wobbler represents the resurrection of a band who were in a bad mood after the departure of their guitar player Morten Andreas Eriksen. He has been replaced by Geir Marius Bergom Halleland which seems to have brought back some fresh air. The band's music is still old 70's symphonic prog rock using old vintage instruments, such as analog keys, mellotron, and flute. The first 20 minutes epic "From Silence to Somewhere" delivers some beautiful old symphonic prog rock with that inevitable link to some structures and sound of many bands of that genre such as Genesis, Anekdoten, and Focus. The song goes into some fascinating moods, powerful crescendos, and twirling content. The band navigates between atmosheres with refined delicacy. There are some marvelous melody lines by Lars Fredrik Fr°islie in a long instrumental section. Many delicate parts of the music in others section are reminiscent of some acoustic music of Hackett and there is a lot of similarity with the analog sound of the synths of Tony Banks. The sound of the flute is adding some energy and light to the melancholic and dark parts. The interlude "Rendered in Shades of Green" is quiet dispendable, but the 2 others tracks continue to the majestic grandeur of the first track which is half of the album duration. To me, this is the most mature album of the band that has reached the balance between emotions and musical creativity (or the heart and the brain) with some great melodies.
