3 stars Oh boy, this is weird. And nice at once. And melody, it's one of the strongest I've ever heard in prog. Maybe over empathized. Really nice thing is that is sounds this way since second second (not first one, of course, there is calm 1st one), everything resembles 70s, or at least it sounds like it to me. Mostly synths. So maybe not 70s we're talking about, but more like emulated Seventies. Voice modulator sometimes. First track, Change defines how will the entire album look like, but rather by style. This is really (from what I know from 70s music) depth probe into past times. You can either love it, or condemn this idea. I think that this affects whole rating of this record, because it's not bad, of course. Just different.

3(+) for better first part of album, worse second one (Closer to the Doom for example). Despite being nice, I can't help myself, but feel this is kinda cheesy. I had difficult times writing this review, but also having myself listen to this again. Not that it's not my cup of tea, I though I would hapilly embrace all melodies I'll be able to find and to be honest, these tracks are actually entirely made of them. But it doesn't work, even if it should. Or lack working function just for me. More research needed, this seemed like easy catch, so I threw the bait. Let's see what future will bring. And other albums though.
