4 stars Man, I love this album. Be warned, though. Retro is what this album is all about.

The most striking thing here is the keys. Expect energetic keyboard parts, but don't expect anything modern or innovative. Honestly, Nassi hits the Hammond and the Rhodes with the same energy and excitement that a young Tony Kaye distinguished himself with in Yes and on the first Flash album. If that's to your taste, you'll love the keys.

The other thing that will really grab your attention is the vocals. Gerakitis delivers some fine vocal performances on his own but when he pairs with Rapti, well.... WOW! Their harmonies twist around each other and dwell on rarely used thirds. It makes tracks like Elbereth and Hang on to a Dream mindblowing.

Anyhow, this is modern spacey, trippy music. The excesses of the genre have been jettisoned, but the core is delightfully intact and engaging. So if you don't mind your psych prog stripped down to it's essentials, you'll love this.

4 stars. Everybody should at least sample this to decide if it's to their taste.
