5 stars It's truly a masterwork. Symphonic prog at it's best and beyond. It takes you to a whole different world. It's great to see some people responsible for those really legendary achievments years ago still developing, pushing the boundaries and making it all fresh and alive. I'am grateful to see that kind of approach. It's a lifetime devotion that makes this music possible to happen. A first song, a self-titled one (or the band was song-titled? ;) ) sets the standard for the entire album. Starts with some anxious ostinato on keyboards, and overdubbed vocals of Miranda. Mellotron joins in and you get to Epilog territory. Soon entire rhythm section gets in and provides some classic prog kick ass. It's basically nuts. Very intense playing. Some unique sounds come up along with all the well known prog instruments. Very rich sound, a lot of themes, extremely wide instrumental palette. Few different horns, each one well introduced in an appropriate section. But for most of the time music is really close to �nglagÄrd. Which is not that obvious when it's gets to another tune. Magmatic Warning provides some distinct vibes. Extended trumpet solo and gentle Miranda's vocals make it a little different. Guess there was some Magma influence to it. Beautiful! Omen also features very nice themes, that remind of some cinematic composers. Short but amazing instrumental piece First Step driven by piano and Mellotrons leads to a final piece which appears to be a song. Bortglöma GÄrdar takes you through the whole spectrum of different moods once again, and ends gently. And makes you want to comeback. I really recommend this amazing piece of art to any music fan. And every progressive rock lover must get one without a doubt!
