4 stars I never heard about this band and for a first time found this name on PA only. So, one day I decided just to listen it ( mostly because of high position in PA Top and good reviews).

I wasn't disappointed. The music is really interesting and quite unusual. First of all, even if they are using many of symphonic prog elements, they still are too eclectic to be classified as symphonic rock band ( what is a big plus in my eyes). Second, they mixed many different elements in their music, so the result is never boring.

For me, they sound as proto symphonic ( it is still not overproduced, without heavy keyboards arrangements, still having the freshness and acoustic soul of rock) based band with folk, Americana and heavy prog elements. Some moments even are jazzy enough! The are very melodic ( some pieces sound as early RPI), almost folk-pop melodic, I can say. But musicianship all is complex and very progressive."Texas Armadillo" is absolutely out of place bluegrass/Americana song, but even it doesn't sound bad in their mixture.

No way masterpiece, this album is really interesting listening - symphonic prog based album for fans, who doesn't like symphonic rock too much!
