4 stars Dark Horizons is a wonderful album. It has all the emotional vocal delivery of neo-prog, the wonderful instrumentation of symphonic prog but with somewhat of a classic gothic undertone, don't let that put you off, its gothic in the sense of the the literature and art, not anywhere near as post punk as the cure. This does work to the albums favour since it matches the emotional delivery of the vocals more. Speaking of delivery the rest of the instrumentation is wonderful. The keyboard has that modern symphonic prog organic feel so it blends wonderfully with the rich guitar tone. The guitar tone, as with many modern prog albums is great and just as with the keyboard, has an organic feel, but with more of an overdriven punch which sounds great. As of time of writing this, this is within my top 10 new prog albums of the year so far. It's a great listen for neo-prog fans who like more guitar driven neo-prog.
