5 stars First of all, sorry for my bad English. For obvious reasons this is my first written review after many ratings here in PA: I decided to do so because I "must" review this masterpiece. For me, this is not Neo-prog, but only one of the best prog albums I ever heard, at the same level of "Selling.., Close to., Pawn Hearts., In the court..", etc. What can I say more? here is all that a prog lover may wish: beautiful melodies, great voice, long tracks, interesting lyrics, odd times, abrupt changes and really wonderful keyboard sounds (I can't believe that Hammond in this album is a clone!). Musicians are all at their best and all tracks are beautiful, especially the interlude of "Sacred sounds", which is for me one of the most beautiful musical sequences in history (maybe I exaggerate? I don't think so). I loved "Ever" and "Subterranea" also, that musically can be easily placed in the same period that they were made, but I think that "Dark Matter" is a masterpiece without time!
