5 stars What an excellent album - MYSTERY appear to have encapsulated all that has gone before and upped their game with this release, with a superb production that enhances the overall effect. Having read some of the reviews elsewhere I was really looking forward to this release, and it has not let me down. What struck me more was the taurus pedals given more emphasis which in turn appear to add a new dimension as well as the lush keyboards that one has come to expect, the 'jangling' picked guitar, the driving, the complex drumming and the familiar vocals. At times vaguely reminiscent of RENAISSANCE or STYX amongst others, an oddity though is the aural link to YES and FLY FROM HERE especially during the opening track... Whilst the opening 6 tracks fly past in their sumptuous glory, it's only the final track 'Chrysalis' that, in my opinion, falls short. This album certainly gets my vote for being the best release of the year (so far). A definite 5 star rating.
