5 stars Okay; first listen; Bleh... Second listen; Meh... Third listen... Hmmm... Errrrr, What?!?!?!? Fourth listen; Okay, Now I'm getting it!!! Fifth and beyond: I Love this album!!!

This is NOT going to be the masterwork of Caligula's Horse. They are one or two albums away...

And when THAT happens, heaven help us...

Despite the ever rotating cast of characters, Caligula's Horse (at the core: Sam Gallen, Jim Grey and Dave Couper), still find a way of making relevant, absolutely outstanding progressive metal. And (ever so much) more...

This does to me what Close to the Edge, The Underfall Yard, and so many other albums have done to me: It makes me pick up my guitar and learn every note... If only for the chorus of "Dream the Dead" alone, I'd give this 5 PA stars, but there is SO MUCH More to be found here...

The vocals and writing of both Jim Grey and the guitars of Sam Vallen make this a five star to me... Once I start with this band, I don't stop for days...

Obviously, your mileage may vary... Best $17.00 (U.S.) I've spent this year...

Grace and peace, Cylli
