3 stars Very pleasant, melodic and mature music with Gabriel-like vocals. The dual keyboards are of course prominant along with some varied guitar play.

I like the way "Fathom" begins as instrumental sounds are being added until vocals come in. Some nice prominant bass lines follow. The song brightens 2 1/2 minutes in, and I like the guitar a couple of minutes later. A calm 6 minutes in before it picks back up. Vocals return after 9 minutes. Synths to end it. "Timewise" opens with some Fripp-like melodies before the tempo picks up and we get this pleasant soundscape. "A Moment's Peace" features intricate and delicate guitar melodies throughout. "Trial And Triumph" opens with bells and chimes before synths roll in and guitar. A full sound after 1 1/2 minutes. Vocals as it settles minute later. The tempo continues to shift. An expressive guitar solo after 7 minutes.

"Speak Of Me As I Am" has a rather epic intro for almost 1 1/2 minutes. Vocals a minute later. Lots of piano melodies follow. A calm before 6 minutes until drums change that then guitar. More piano and vocals later. "Wayfarer Dance" is much like "A Moment's Peace" mostly made up of intricate guitar melodies. "Harvesting Stars" has a welcomed intro of soaring guitar. A change 1 1/2 minutes in as the tempo picks up and vocals join in. Guitar is back after 3 1/2 minutes,piano then takes over for a while. Soaring vocals, then the guitar is soaring after 7 minutes, and it seems to go on forever. Nice. Organ 11 minutes in,vocals a minute later. Guitar is back briefly 13 minutes in.

Another record I would describe as good but not great.
