4 stars A truly eclectic and diversified creation from Kerry Livgren this one.

In just over an hour, we're served compositions ranging from mellow folk-inspired affairs to majestic soundtrack.inspired symphonic creations, with detours to AOR-tinged territories as well as a funk-tinged blues-rock affair that sounds like it was pulled off one of Robin Trowers earlier solo efforts.And a couple of fusion escapades are thrown in for good measure as well.

The first half of the album is a slightly mixed affair, with "The Sentinel" as a standout venture here; but on the second half of the album one gem after another appears; with the latin-tinged energetic fusion tune "As It Should Be" and the more laid-back organ-dominated "The Man with an Iron Heart" as two of many highlights in a diversified collection of songs exploring a multitude of stylistic variations.

Those looking for a well made album covering a broad spectrum of styles should try to get hold of this album; and especially the last seven compositions should charm and fascinate many purveyors of progressive rock.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
