5 stars This is one very IMPRESSIVE debut, indeed...

This is prog with absolutely everything including the kitchen sink, & your neighbor's uncle's cousin's pet included too!

Soul Doubt really pulled out all the stops on this one. Crossing into so may territories and sub-genres of prog with graceful ease. You'll find Prog-Metal one second, AOR the next, Crossover-esque immediately after that and then, a touch of Symphonic leading into... (ad infinitum).

This certainly has its basis in the Prog Metal/Heavy Prog territory, but it's also quite an epic project; so there are a great variety of styles, colors and flavors to be found here. Great production, songwriting, and performances from more than capable musicians (should read Virtuosi Musicians) adds up to a truly exceptional release. This is an epic, long endurance, adventurous prog epic, wherein the individual songs are strong enough to stand on their own.

I'm going with 5 full PA stars. This truly is a fantastic album!

As always, your actual mileage may vary.

Grace and peace, Cylli (Jim)
