3 stars A bit surprised to provide the first written review, 14 years after the album has been released. Have listened to it for 13 years and that was enough time to come to a conclusion :-)

The second jazz influenced effort is equally good instrumentally but stronger in terms of compositions. The trio delivers very convincing instrumental storms with obvious focus on drums, keyboards and guitars.

I would like to higlight the energetic "Nuclear train" with excellent dynamic and busy drums. "Flight of doom" has metal influences with heavy guitar riffs. "Deep space" is a more emotional and relaxing piece with clear guitar motive, a sublime composition, you might say. "Digging for chance" starts with Gilmouresque guitar before sequencing some jazzy chords. The last epic suite is quite versatile and goes in many directions.

3.5 stars
