4 stars The band has evolved in a new direction with this new album which seems weird to consider them a Heavy Prog band. You will hear some space, psychedelic influences and still some jazz parts. They enjoy building their songs like a jam session slowly for most of their songs except for the first track and last one which has a frenetic pace that is more complex with many twists. The songs are developed with such simplicity that it easy to get you hooked in a kind of infectious groove where each instrument is seducing you, starting with the great drums and that heavy sounded bass As for the keyboards, they are still present in the background subtly in the Canterbury style. And what about the great guitar playing of Kostas Konstantinidis. The addition of some violin and sax to the drum/bass combo bring more textures to the overall sound of this brilliant album. I heard influences from bands like Djam Karet and Ozric Tentacles and a lot more in this album that is mostly instrumental. Recommended!
