4 stars Very accessible, but absolutely not in a "boring" way. This is the first Raven Sad album I've listened to. I'd assume early albums are slightly more psychedelic than this one, as it only really hints at psychedelia, but the "dreamscape" effect is present in many of the tracks. Certainly towards the end it reminds me of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb in style and pace.

Most tracks alternate between dreamscape and slightly heavier interruptions which blend together really well as the organs and guitar play off each other. Sit back, relax and enjoy. Colorbox, the longest track on the album, is probably a bit love or hate - it has the feel of a systematic walkthrough of several subgenres of prog one by one. For me, its the reason for giving four stars rather than five as its the only time the composition seems a bit artificial. But every other track is excellent.
