4 stars Wow! I had seen this album but was reluctant. I didn't want a Fates Warning/OSI hybrid dose of music as I don't get real excited about either, though I own all released by these bands. What I did get was one of the heaviest atmosperic albums I have heard.

This has more of the feeling of Chroma Key, but with alot more muscle. It has the dreamy atmospheres of Porcupine Tree but with stronger melody. A very thick bass driven foundation, which is no suprise given Vera's weapon of choice.

Heavy bass, electric guitars, piano, synths, organ, electric piano, more synths, looping and voice overs, more synths and some heavy guitars, melodically strong vocals all make for an excellent escape. Highly Recommended!!!!!
