4 stars I totally recommend this album to old progressive rock lovers. I was introduced to this band by a veteran prog fan when I was just getting into it, and realized that I loved long songs. He showed me between heaven and hell, the song, which is amazing I must say. It's both epic, and somewhat classic rocking at parts. It begins with a long section with dark sounds that remind me of approaching danger... like I'm locked in a dungeon, or something, it's really cool and it paints images in your head. It is reminiscent of ambient experimentation such as the mid section of Pink Floyd's Echoes. Then it becomes a quiet ballad, followed by a classic rock sounding section and then a reprise of the ambient part accompanied by ritualistic chanting vocals that lead into a progressive passage that ends the song.

That's the important thing about this album, although the other songs are pretty memorable as well. Twilight is pretty good, it has that typical segmented progressive rock song and it's 8 minutes long. The other two are not that important progressively, but they are still good songs to enjoy.

If I had something to complain about, it would be that some of the songs end quite abruptly without warning, which is a bit anticlimactic. But this is a good album, really.
