5 stars In Continuum is another project from Dave Kerzner after the end of Sound of Contact because of the departure of 2 members and financial problems. The music here is an evolution of Sound of Contact with the same inspiration of Dave coming from the 70's prog of Yes, Genesis and more obvious Pink Floyd later period. We have plenty of accessible symphonic prog rock music centered around a sci-fi story around the concept of love. We can feel an uplifting atmosphere throughout the album carried by some impressive work from the vocals and some sumptuous keyboard melodies. If you hope to find some guitar solos here, you won't find much here, it's the keys, piano and the vocals that have the lead. Dave always chooses some big prog rock musicians to help him and which gives a variety of styles and textures. This album is like part two of a double album that you can listen to like one big piece reflecting the different parts of the story with some ambient passages, some short heavier parts and some of the themes that are nicely repeated throughout the album. I enjoy those short and darker passages, some instrumental sections even though most of the album is driven by light and joyful, sometimes nostalgic atmosphere that is centered around strong melodies. Often an album loses his intensity before the end, but in this case, Dave has created music that you can't stop listening after more than an hour.
