Prog Reviewer
4 stars In a way, there's not a lot to be said about this album. It is definitely an excellent album - great to have on when you want some more peaceful, quiet music. And it has some epic moments that really sound great. But it suffers from one major weakness, and that is a repetitive song structure.

Each song on this album is breathtakingly beautiful. There is no other word to describe it. The music here is beautiful instrumental work. But, while it manages to have various levels of intensity, it does not have as much variety as one might like. The typical song structure involves building up to a climax at the end of the song, which is somewhat louder and more intense than the song up to that point. There is a bit of variation, but not a lot.

But Mono do what they do very well, and have constructed music that is, as I have already said at least once, quite beautiful. So while you may not find yourself recalling too many moments from this album (other than perhaps the ending, which is the most epic bit of all), it absolutely succeeds at creating a nice peaceful feeling.

Overall, because this album does what it does so well, I'm going to give it four stars. But I definitely would not seek out more by this band, unless I had good reason it would sound different then this.
