5 stars Upon first listen, I was totally taken by this EP, which immediately earned a place up there as one of my favorite prog metal releases. And I'll tell you why: the voice! John Arch's voice is phenomenal, and it's much better on this EP than on the Fates Warning albums he fronted (who'd have though that possible?). Especially the vocals of the track Cheyenne are fantastic. The two tracks are epic and complex in structure making great use of dynamics, yet quite easy to listen to, which is always a challenge and thus somewhat of a feat. Another thing that I like is that, while the musicians performing on the EP are members of Fates Warning (Matheos and Vera) and Dream Theater (Portnoy), the EP sounds like neither Fates Warning nor Dream Theater, I think, but strikes me as being very original.

I hope John Arch will find the time to release more albums now and then! Please, John, please! ;-)
