5 stars On their 1998 album released by MUSEA, Ageness continues their tradition with great opening songs in "Line of Force". It's flying high with a big groove. The second song "Fear" has as well been born under lucky stars, despite the chorusline lyrics. I can imagine future generations playing these songs at their nights for classics. The consept works well. Travelling from light in to shadows and back. "Chain Reaction" is probably the most furious Ageness I've ever heard. Despite the hard edge there are some delicate and fragile moments there. The flight on the dark side continues.... "Metamorphosis" begins in 'gentlegiantic' atmosphere, only to burst in to metal mayhem and so on. There are plenty of catchy breaks and surprises, but they're all justified. The end climax calms down and gives space to over 26 minute "Sequels", which is true ecstasy from beginning to end. This remarkable epic works like a good three hour film. The sense of time disappears and in the end it feels like it was almost too short. The musical mosaic Ageness produces in it's entirety is impossible to describe in words. When I was younger, I used to cathegorise things for being "the best possible" or "absolutely awesome". Both these goes with "Imageness".
