5 stars We are actually in front of one of my favourite albums of all time, without exaggerating. There's enough musical ideas in here to make several prog albums. I wont go in detail with the songs, this album is really eclectic. From the 10 minute fusion style opener to the 18 minute closing track there are lots of sheer beautiful moments. This album just doesnt get old. I ve been listening since 2009, the time I ve more or less rate it the first time. The only thing I can think of close in terms of busy composition and smooth transitions would be DTs Images & Words. I can see by the approximate score oscillation in this record, theres a bit of polarized opinions in here. Some may say its just too much, others just like me would give them a 5 star rating without hesitation. I can really understand the 3/4 star rating, surely in the end its just a matter of taste like any type of music. I just think that this record deserve to be above the 4 rating mark so more people can check them out. Believe me when I tell you there are worse records with higher ratings.
