4 stars Excellent atmospheric, eclectic, jazzy, mysterious, and slightly melancholic symphonic progressive music. Great playing. Lots of flute, great drumming and great guitar, among other instruments. Mostly instrumental. Similar in sound to Camel, Anyone's Daughter, King Crimson, Agitation Free (and some other Krautrock), Genesis, UK, and other french bands like Pentacle, Pulsar, Ange, Arachnoid and Carpe Diem. I personally very much enjoy the vocal style. Also, great poignant melancholy in their sound, and great atmospheres.

Not as good as their follow up "Between Flesh and Divine", their masterpiece. This is almost as good but it sounds at times that they have not fully solidified their sound and the songs are slightly more uneven and slightly less memorable. Vocals are not as good as on the other album. Also, it is slightly less polished in sound than that album, and with a rougher/more aggressive and more jazz fusion sound and less of the eclectic percussion that is masterfully present on their other album.

Highlights: Prelude, Mahzun Gozler, Landscape, and to a lesser extent Visions and Hayal Dolu Gunler +cin

This record may take a few listens to really "get". Get their other album first. If you enjoy that one, definitely get this.
