Prog Reviewer
1 stars This album is just a carbon copy of its predecessor.

The band keeps on digging the jazz-rock mood with little feeling. Actually, this work is even worse than '' Sea Reflections'' and there aren't any moments of eternity featured here. It is only a short (thank god) journey into jazz influenced music with, here and there, some incursions into a more folkish approach ('' The Second Step'').

But this is really the only moment of relief during this tasteless album. The band must surely have their own very good reasons to have redirected their music in a complete different style but I can't really understand this change. Not for the best IMHHO. On the contrary.

Even if ''Gheel'' is decent, the whole of this album seriously hurts. I don't like it at all. To listen to this type of music while the band is under the symphonic umbrella is quite bizarre. Jazz-rock would have been more appropriate. But the band will again show another direction with their next release, so I understand that it is quite difficult to catalogue them.

Still, IMO this is not a good album and I will rate with one star only.
