5 stars I almost didn't get it to this album, because I was little bit disappointed by first track. Just few spots in first half, where there is too much electro sounding keyboard for my taste. It's clearly to see at 3:30 for about 30 seconds. But then it radically changes to great prog rock. I mean that first half was really not my cup of tea, it was

His voice reminds me Peter Gabriel. I almost though it's him. Maybe it's a part of this 70s style conspiracy. There isn't much to be said about this music, because it is too much information. Kinda weird, but it's everchanging style/tone/music. Drummer, is far from being good and I know that I'm not gonna like it. Fortunately it's not used so much (in 5B and in general) - I mean not so prominent.

There's big eclectisity in this record, every track has literally own style. Thomas Tracks can be considered as full CD, because of its 74 minutes. Oh, how I expect their next release, because in this music is everything I want. And I even didn't talk about lyrics yet. Big melodicity accompanied by progressivness.

This review is nothing against direct approach to this music. Try it and you will see. Or you will not, depends on your feelings. Mine are great. One of the best albums I've ever heard. I can't see any bad thing except drummer and first half of first track. 5 stars, well deserved.

EDIT: And enjoying it over and over again, after months of listening, I still can say that this is one of the best symphonic prog avalaible here. Beats many old dogs too. This is masterpiece of masterpieces.
