3 stars And if something can describe them, space rock feeling will be it. Music, which is almost transcendental, very light hearted (using of calm sounding synths and prominent use of flute), but sometimes this ever present, electronic background sounds annoying (when you concentrate exactly on it, same as when you're listening rock and try to find bass sound there). So feeling if you'll like it or hate it also depends on how much you can handle this synth riff (sounds like that and bears many similarities), which sometimes takes solo part. And you should also know that it's not normal synth sound, this is modified one to suit space tune. Record is walking on this curvy and thin border between 3 and 4 all the time.

Of course, this is not psychedelic, at least in classic way of this word. This is little bit crazy, space by sound of synths. It bears some traits of krautrock (some, little bit, almost unnoticeable). Expect guitar solos, this is symphonic trait. In fact, synths reminds me Arena (for example Moviedrome ends of solos) and Ayreon.

EDIT: First, when I saw Prog-J's review, I though that it's quite unfair. But then, I realise what he meant by it. And I understood better what he meant when I heard it by myself. Well, 2 stars isn't exactly what I would give, this record deserves little bit more (but just a little), but it's not my style to counterweight rating of others, as I saw to do some on other servers (if your favourite movie has 40% and you like it for 70%, it's pointless to give it 100% just to it have average rating you want). Therefore, my opinion is just for

3(+)
