3 stars Good debut album from this band. I was hooked from the very beginning when I heard one song from them on the internet radio. It sounded very different and I had to look into it. The music has some heavy part, some softer part, a lot of flute and there is definitively that middle- east influence in the music.

The second song "Haze" has a very intriguing starts and I wondered if there was something wrong with my CD player. The vocals from Petronella Nettermalm (Paatos) kick in and the enchantment continues. I think this song is the best of the album.

"Blocked" is a short (almost 5 mins) instrumental. It is the weakest track of the album but not bad considering that I am not too fond of instrumental. Daniel Gildenglow sings on "The Sum Of Damage Done". It gives the song a strong Pain of Salvation flavour. The last song "Real" has some parts that reminded me of the late Beatles era/period.

Overall, this album has a good mix of different textures. I kind of wonder how much is influenced by the various contributions of the guests here. The whole package seems to lack of homogeneity and ventures in different directions. At first I found this very entertaining. But somehow the novelty wears off after repeated listen and nothing seems to stick.

Still, let's keep an eye on these guys, I see a lot of potential for the next album. 3 stars.
