4 stars Well, it's their second and also 2nd I've tried. And I have to say that I'm not disappointed, but also not satisfied. But I almost never am, I mean fully. Only few achieved this goal.

But don't be sad, "Facing the Sunset" is a good album. Atmospheric a lot, depending on longer compositions, they offer well structured musical experience. One of these, where I just can close my eyes and dream, just imagine all these images that it brings to my mind, while I'm sure that this will provide enough resources to continue dreaming. Intriguing enough, not much experimental, but still brand new to some extent. As I said, nothing weird and certainly not possessing two of bad attributes of music ("not from this world like" & "ugly sounding"). They don't sing much, over 40 minutes here are done in solos, keyboard and guitar ones. Melody is not so clear as in their (2009) new album, songs depends more on their length. So for this, I'll give

4(-), not bad, indeed well done, could be better, but what's better after all. Better melody ? Better layered song ? Nope, this is enough for very good album.
