4 stars 3.75 really for the solid effort, a definite improvement on anything these guys did previously - the vocals sounding like Roine Stolt of the Flower Kings!) are the biggest improvement - it almost sounds like a different band. Very accomplished, smooth, well produced, good melodies and arrangements, although perhaps not very original, and the lyrics are rather lame. The illustration on the cover is a rather cheesy knock-off of Roger Dean's art. This album falls into the shadow of Yes and Genesis, so that's why I would not call it a masterpiece. I like especially the eponymous 20 minute epic - it's a fine, well written and executed piece of work. The only album worth considering from this band.
