4 stars This is the third album of the band with a new bass player in the name of David Greenway who replaced Jayjay Quick in the Spring of 2018. The first track is instrumental with a dark atmosphere, the keys setting this mood nicely before the guitar kicks in. "Moonlight" is another instrumental track united by a duel between the piano and the guitar with again some haunting atmosphere in the middle of the song that brings everything in another level."In the Dead of the Night" is not the UK cover! This time the vocals make their first appearance with saxophone, the song keeps the dark atmosphere of the album. And finally the epic final song "The Child Within" has that Gilmour style of guitar, some beautiful keyboards melodies with the fretless bass sound in the back. If you enjoy melodic, dark prog rock music and are not afraid of going out in the night, this is something for you...
