4 stars Norbert Krueler has been known in Germany as a DJ since the 1980s. I stumbled upon his latest baby just recently and I found myself candid, young and dazed it must be said in front of such a successful album. This double album concept and very long, more than 150 minutes can be heard in 2 parts so as not to hit your ears too much; however, everything is good in it, even very good. The atmospheres bloom well the neo-prog style SYLVAN'S with long ballads interspersed with various solos. The more distant sound would come from the long compositions of MARILLION, but it must be added more electric atmospheres, (its original universe I think!). In fact, the world of SHAMALL even comes to the electro-pop sounds at ERA or ENIGMA . In fact, it is indeed a synthesis of these two currents that you may pleasantly hear on this album; some titles are more nervous, others are developing ambient, see with a few touches of spleen , but it is above all the big flights of the neo-prog current that hold the top of the bill. I hope you will think a little of me who made you want to swallow yourself in a good chair, as one of my acquaintances did only a few months ago; you can always listen to lively, singular and very enriching creations these days!
