5 stars One of my top 10 bands of all time (the only Neo Prog band in this category), I was waiting almost anxiously their new release. At last, I fell in love with this album at the fifth listen, feeling it closer to "Ever" than to their 2004 effort "Dark Matter" until today an album that I don't quite understand in it's entirety. This 2009 CD is closer to their roots, heavily Genesis-Steve Hackett influenced, on a Classic Prog Rock tradition. The first track deserves a 5 star by itself, built around a beautiful guitar phrase. Considering that this album began it's life back in 2007, i don't know how much Martin Orford contributes to it, but Mark developes some keyboard textures, that sounds new to the ears of a long time IQ afficionado. Andy is great on drums, on a free style peformance all along the album. I hope this album will be a new beginning to this great band, as "Ever" did, back in the nineties, a step backwards to develop again, in a near future, a jewel like "the 7th house"
