4 stars Conception's first album consists of a power-progressive melodic release.

First of all, the band is just making its first passages and develops its style. Obviously, the songs are highly influenced by power metal bands. But, Conception add a unique taste of melody to all this.

Roy Khan's voice is ''crystally beautiful'', combined with Tore's guitar playing, gives a marvellous feeling and atmosphere. The album's production is not the perfect one, considering that this is the first attempt of the band, but this is being used after some while. The compositions present beautiful passages of keyboards, too. In fact, the whole album's atmosphere is often owned by these wonderful keys. Tore, often gives a Spanish taste to his solos, as they consist of fast shreddings and links (clearly influenced by Al's Di Meola playing). The acoustic and the classical guitar are also highly presented in this album. The drum's sound is very dry and direct and this fact gives an underground character at the whole project. I know that not everybody would like this, but personally, I do love this element.

Coneption enter into their first progressive paths. Lately, will prove their own, unique style of composition with the Parallel Minds and In Your Multitude releases. Here, we only have their debut that, in my opinion, is considered to be a beautiful album, fool of sentiments and melodies. Highly recommended...

3,5 stars that tend towards to 4 really.
