5 stars This is such a great album that I don't even know where to start!

This is a great example of what this band can do. They blend together different styles of music together so well putting together softer sides and heavier ones without brutal changes. They put together jazz, metal, rock, latin, folk, you name it. The songs are really evolving and ever changing.

Yes their main influence is clearly jazz but without too much improvisation. The tracks seem calculated to a high degree. There is no place for some 16 minutes solos or anything. They really focus on melodies which are mind blowing and since there are no vocals they speak with their instruments making the emotions even stronger. In one song you can go from ambitious to happy to angry to spooked.

The musicianship is marvelous. The drums beats vary with great transitions and accuracy. The drum tracks are just... WOW! The bassist is also very talented and masters different techniques so to adapt to the many genres they ride during the long songs. I could say the same for the pianist and guitarist. ...And if you can see them live DON'T MISS IT! Seeing them playing those pieces of art with such enthusiasm makes them even better.

Great melodies, musicianship, genres adaptations! I just don't know why they are not that known on Prog archives...

if I could give more than five stars I would
