3 stars Amazing cover, it really demonstrates the name of the album.

1/Initiation - very complex instrumental song lead by keyboards. Excellent, but maybe a little bit long.

2/We Don't Belong To Heaven - very haunted chord progression, vocals are good, overall it's nice song without doubt.

3/Reality Or Misanthropy? (Mix-up) - i truly enjoy music of this song, but it's a shame to say that vocals are just bad, out of melody and moaning.

4/What We See / The Increasing Sorrow Of The Earth - and again weak vocals broke good song, guitar solo in the middle is nice.

5/Angels And Demons - keyboard instrumental in baroque style with Keith Emerson kind solo in the middle of song. In my opinion this song is boring.

6/Revealing Signs Of Love - the longest song in the album contains chorus that remind me of Genesis song "Many too many", last 3 mintues of song are really good.

7/Fallen Angel - instrumental composition with orchestral arrangements in route march style. Pompous and bombastic. There are too much keyboards for my taste, this song is seems to be overproduced. Some tones sounds absolutely retro.

8/Loneliness - vocal melody remind me of Citizen Cain. I mark this song as best on "Angels And Demons". Vocals and keyboard melodies are really cool here.

9/Fire In The Sky, Fire On Earth - 4th instrumental song on this album and as usual lead by keyboards. I should critize the lenght and arrangements, washy and boring for being placed on progressive rock music record. The same chord progression repeats over and over again without changes.

10/White Lies? / Brief Story Of The Freewill - good complex composition, contains bass solo and grand finale!

Overall, it is a good album, musician skills are high, but vocals and arrangements break down songs very often. If i would be producer of this record i would reduce it 2 times.
