5 stars Osiris are not a band I know which is not surprising given that this is their first studio release for over ten years. On the strength of this release, I shall certainly check out their back catalogue. I enjoyed this album from the first listen. I am a sucker for fine guitar solos and this album has some exquisite sequences. There is not a bad track on the album. The title track, the longest at just under ten minutes, opens with a guitar solo that reminds me of David Gilmour at his best and then picks up the tempo before the vocal commences at the halfway point. Until We Meet is another notable track, an instrumental that builds slowly as a piano theme develops to be replaced by guitar just before the midpoint ? a lovely track. The other six tracks include another instrumental as a bonus track, and in total, make up a most enjoyable release and one of the best of the year. I have been playing this album on repeat and I am sure I shall continue to do so for a while longer. An excellent release worthy of five stars.
