4 stars So now I will submit a review for this outstanding debut of the Orchestra. This was my first contact with this band and the first few seconds blew me away. I heard "Noonward Race" in form of a Mp3 and was shocked: how could anybody play so fast, was my first reaction. I immediately ordered the album and was amazed (so Mp3s are ALWAYS a very bad thing and only harm bands and music industry). You get the finest, technically most brilliant Jazzrock/Fusion album there is. And watch out for the awesome Violin played by Jery Goodman, it's the one thing that makes the Orchestra most identifiable I think. But all artists perform on a very high level and it's very unfair to point out one of them (did I? oops...) But there's one thing that obviates the 5 star rating: I miss the feeling, it's too cold, no rememberable melodies. Ok you don't have to have such thing all the time and it's actually prog so you can expect exertive music and you know that you have to concentrate a bit but there's no other prog album where I really need a break after listening to it. It's definitely no album to let oneself go while listening to it. So I subtract one Star, I would distract a half Star but it's not possible and I HAVE to draw off a bit, sorry...
