4 stars Now we are talking about prog rock, aren't we ? Even this first, "One By One" track, despite its short lenght has a lot of prog to offer. This guitar sound after he sings "...once" is wonderful.

As first reviewer pointed, this is nice debut. But as of 2009, this 2001 album stayed as only album by this artist. Which is sad, because it's good one. I found just two bad things about it. Just a minor flaw, the album cover, which is also good one at once. I hate bugs and there is a one. It ruins all this beauty. But that's just my problem, therefore I declare this artwork as good. Second one is worse thing. Drums, I just feel there should be someone living, not just drum machine. This prevents me from giving five stars. But it's better 4, you can call it 4+.

Songs are beautiful and innovative. Israel offered not so many artists to deplete their culture resources. There are also some instruments unknown to me, but they helps for sure. Woman vocals are very good and male are good, maybe standart (in a good way of this word).

Songs are very, very melodic. Which I can appreciate a lot, when joined together with prog side of the music. Just 47 minutes of great prog rock. I mean that I feel like I want more of this great music. Maybe I can take this rating to five stars

Well, after some listening, "The Coin" is song which persuades me the most to give 5 rating. It's also oriental flavour which overwhelms everyone involved in listening this. Violin, which is sometimes present is also good deal. "The Well" decided, I'm giving 5.
