4 stars I am a prog nut in all the sense, not really much in to prog-metal (with some exceptions). The Allegory of Light gets heavy at times but not that much for my taste (Thank God). There is something on this album that can not put my finger on it, but make my juices going. A fantastic discovery for me and probably without a doubt one of the top 10 best releases of last year and a fantastic way to end 2003. They probably are crazy fans of early Yes, but being said that Syzygy has make a personal and unique statement and that is what make this CD special. This comes to show that still in this time, people can make prog music at the level of the 70' without being imitators or clones. This is pure prog-Rock rigth in your face but, plenty of soft and mellow passages (Thank God again) and will probably can become a classic. I personally believe that the long instrumental suites are the best and to complement this the album come in a very nice packing and has a very good production overall. Very good/4stars.
