4 stars 01. Abandoned World To show that the first track on the disk to a known 'understanding' of music, soon came the phrase: 'to get more omega. You know what? He is a jerk! (laughter) This track shows the great potential of the band, heavy guitars without being 'hard', a melodic voice of mind and excellent keyboards. As I said in describing the band is not, nor Neo Prog Prog Metal, as is normal with bands co-sisters, what we have here is a sound mannered and very melodic. There is only the half that comes with the heavy riffs and some words in the dry sound, which takes the time to last, just back from a beautiful and melodic and the theme again.

02. The Wandering That the bottom row of excellent Peter Asp, the keypad of Jerry Sahlin never ceases to be desired and always fills very well the 'space'. One of the things that impresses me is the voice of Herman Saming which is excellent! A good chorus recheia the song. Hello Andersson of the guitars are magnificent, even in the soil. String magnificent with parties and more almost classic chorus and emotion.

03. Grandpa Phone Home This song is awesome! From the beginning to the epic 'reggae' with a great chorus. That everyone here should hear. What this band saw! With an instrumental that most perfect and accurate metric is one of the highlights.

04. Waltz With Mother Nature The beginning already kills a bitch great synthesizer, and a line of low most brilliant yet. Oh sure, a soulful voice can not even more. Carib? Yeah, I went to him, came back and did a very nice one for our music. (laughter) Highlight to hit Tomas Erlandsson with music in all its broken. A great atmosphere for all the music. Many overlapping guitars, direct influence of Brian May (Queen), master of overlap. The synthesizers are essential to the sound of the band.

05. Why bother This song reminds me some 80's bands, but the last bar before the back is another story. It is amazing how many details, while the voice through the guitar phrases to pursue another target and another keyboard. With many guitars scattered by the band and also many keyboards, all excellent!

06. Today 'Report This track starts in a 'strange' with some settings, then as the title suggests are given the news, and if I mistake the second time that the 'reporter' speaks, he says something about Brazil. The guitar is just fantastic in the sequence. Changes in tone and theme of an easy way and leave the listener upset, but paying attention to every detail, which is great. Nearly one instrumental track, unless the reporter and the voice of a very legal and other news.

07. Welcome Exciting start, however, they are very good at introductions energy. The verse is sung on a low line of very good and an excellent keyboard, the voice is always highlighted. The chorus is still legal. Climates that most sensational, around half of the land we have a low that is at least one of the more melodic stuff. The sequence has a guitar break (which at that time we already know) and he learned it vary with the best of our melodist music.

08. Cat Eyes I'm not sure if it is a low wooden original, but I think even a synthesizer in the introduction. A stylish jazz, type 40, with known tune, but with a touch ACT is divine. Several voice and a climate that is very nice Christmas, brings good memories, even if you have no.

09. The Chase Box of music? No! Almost like something (or not, depends on the point of view). I only know that the combination of them and guitar synthesizer always surprises me. The melodies are always so delicate, but at the same time dense and full of broken. The song is almost continuously since the end with his box of music has entered almost in communion with 'a long song'.

10. Personalities - The Long One a. Foreplay Only a small introduction of keyboard and vocal.

b. Piece Of Meat What I said? They have a morning to make a joyful sound, but at the same time dense. Just over 1 minute and ...

c. Tinnitus The quebradeira starts, pure Progressive Rock 90s, excellent! Guitar and synthesizer on a strong and complex.

d. Lord Of Lies Lord Of Lies is almost happy, and several passages' sunny ', but what wrong with that ... no? Music needs to be sad forever? I think not!

e. Emelie (Ms. Amnesia) I like this type of synthesizers. A strange letter, so I got an almost Matrix.

f. Insomniac This is the best part, that means something Wish You Were Here it is, I love these effects mono. Indeed the whole is full of effects.

g. Concluding Speech The final speech is a good excuse for ending the track in style. Viva the disc sensational.

Usually this does not sound seduces me, but this disc is an exception.
