3 stars At the first listening of this album I thought: Wow, these guys are great! In fact here we can find all the "progressive" components: long tracks, sudden changes, keen sense of melody, typically '70's sounds, excellent instrumental technique, beautiful voices, so I thought that my appreciation for this job would be increased day by day. Instead, after several listens, even if I liked it, I felt that Blomljud didn't "took" me so much, and I couldn't understand why. After several weeks of listening, I have come to a conclusion: to my ears this album sounds too happy or pastoral. I don't think that music must necessarily be sad and gloomy", because there are so many music genres and so many ways to appreciate it, but, especially in progressive rock, I think that there should be a touch of emotion, passion, and sometimes a little of suffering. However, for many people this album can be rightly considered as a masterpiece, but IMHO it lacks the intensity that I can find, for example, in The sacrifice of Symphony X, even if it's a different genre. 3 stars
