3 stars It is so good to hear Cynic music before 15 years. Is not so good to listen to their music witha leak of originallity. I had the opportunity to listen to this album at the house of a friend twice. The first time i heard to it i found it for 5 stars but then i didn,t find it so good.

Focus was very original for 1994 .It was a masterpiece of the tech extr.prog metal or post metal prog. That album established the basis for this type of music.

This album is very good if you put it in the 90 ties or the beginning of the 2000,but in this last 14 years it seems that other bands took the place of Cynic(Meshuggah,Mars Volta,Opeth,Fates Warning etc... for ex.)

This album reminds me too much of The Mars Volta and if you take off the growling it is the new Mars Volta album. Same instrumental arrangements ,same vocals,very similar compositions. So this album better to be classified as tech extreme prog metal is a heavy prog album in the line of TMV.

Songs are not so original too....

So then i put to this work 3 stars
