4 stars Huh ? Unlike anything I heard so far in this style, because style of singing in first song, Longing Endings - two words, then pause between lyrics line, but instruments stops too. It sounds quite progressive (just try it too), even it's simple idea. Maybe somebody used it already, but 1)not in that way, 2)I haven't heard, or remember it so well, or 3)no one did this in this style. And towards the end of the song, heavier sound is incorporated, before finally returning back. It's beautiful music. Very melodic and symphonic (OK, that doesn't mean Symphony Prog instantly, I know it).

Simply pure beauty.

Second song, Signs is done in heavier style completely, (Heavy Neo, maybe Prog Metal little bit) and rest is switching between these two ways. Of course they're different, it's just my general sorting. Quite big element here is also overpowering sound, strings, guitar, vocals together making "impression".

4(+), refreshing, feeling "brand new", but very melodic. Take caution, those of you who can't handle it well. And it's also so long, but long = more of these good tunes in this case. And with nice surprise in form of Magenta's singer, Christina, she can always please me. These days it looks like that boundaries between Neo and Symphonic are slowly melting away and these two becoming one now.

EDIT: After let's say ten listens, I still am amazed. Only lesser disappointment is second track, but not so bad as it seemed before. But little bit annoyed by certain things

EDIT2: After three weeks of listening, I think that I'm ready to lower the rating.
