5 stars Hey guys! This is a classic. I'm a huge Prog fan. 46 Years old, Old school, but not so old school that I don't appreciate Porcupine Tree, Mars Volta and even a little Spocks Beard or Dream Theater now and then. I've got most of the old great stuff from the 70s, and let me tell you. I think this is the best Prog album since The Wall. So the best Prog album in 28 years. And if you don't consider The Wall Prog, than lets say its the best Prog album since 1975's Wish You Were Here. Best Prog album in 33 Years!! OK you don't think Floyd is Prog, well you're wrong, but then lets say its the best Prog album since Lamb Lies Down On Broadway in 1974. 34 years!! Its just that great.

Possibly you prefer a little more metal or hystronic vocals in your Prog. Well then this largely instrumental, yet guitar based music, won't be your favorite Prog album in 34 years, but if you dig the Canterbury bands, Passport, Bruford, Brand X, Weather Report, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Yes, I promise you'll love this masterpiece. Its almost fusion, but stays firmly on Progfirma! I don't know how they did it. Composing songs that bring out the best in what we love about 70s Prog, yet updating the sounds somewhat to be very now. Just great music, for people who need a little more than the pop chords/arrangements in their diet.

Easily my favorite album (of any genre) of 2008. I just hope the boys in D.F.A. can read the great reviews they're getting here and places like Amazon.com, so they know they're reaching people. If have 4000 CDs/Lps of all genres, and its hard to get this boy too excited (this is my first review for this blog) these days, but D.F.A. did it for me. (can they read English? I hope so)
