2 stars The album starts with ambience sounds resembling Rovert Fripp's 1990's solo droning, but as the music rises from it, the real characteristics of this group are presented. The sounds are dominated with heavy guitar riffs, clean keyboards and really ace drumming. From the progressive rock groups I have so far heard, this music resembles the most like 1980's and 1990's Rush: The guitar playing style, way of drumming, supporting clean keyboards, arrangements and feeling of the songs, I even hear some passages which resemble some sequences of the songs of referred group (like main rhythm of "Confrontation" song and Rush's "Hyperspace" section of "Natural Science"). Also other Finnish groups like Ageness and Prime Mover have some similarities with this; Not too eccentric approach, emphasizing positive feeling, heavy guitar riffs, detailed arrangements, good compositions and professional musicians. If you like more straightforward riff construction with supporting synth effects, and heroic sounding melodies with fine instrumental arrangements and virtuosic playing abilities, this might be worth checking from the country of thousand lakes. It did not fit totally to my personal musical taste, but anybody liking specially this kind of music might easily flip in additional stars to his or her review. Here the lack of personality and imagination did not compensate the amount of evidently fine composition, arrangement and performing skills.
