5 stars I knew this band, but my ears did not reach their music and this album (for some reason, the difficult-to-pronounce name of the band repelled me and the cover was not particularly impressed).But all in good time... It was from this recording that I got acquainted with their phenomenal music. The 2018 album "BLURRING THE LINES ... MANIFESTO OF DEMOCRACY".Oh, it's not for nothing that he is in the list of the best records of 2018 on the progarchives!. WHAT an amazing beginning: composition No. 1 "Wretch" sets an excellent creative tone and then we hear a fascinating atmosphere throughout all the compositions of THIS WORK, and excellent surprises and unpredictable turns (example: track No. 6 begins with a shaking sitar floating in meditation, but then everything changes...a certain tension is growing and soon we hear music similar to the King Crimson of the Red 1974 period !!! I'm in the sediment)..It feels like the musicians are getting high from their playing.The keyboardist, guitarist and drummer is beyond praise...the bassist is a little in the shadow of the other instrumentalists.I don't want to compare this band with different grandees of progressive music (everyone will hear their own). Like any talented recording, THIS ONE amazes with each new listening. For those who are looking for new instrumental prog-rock recordings, be sure to listen to this album! Skeptical music lovers who think that nothing interesting is happening in instrumental prog-rock anymore, then urgently listen to this masterpiece! Pay your attention to these Americans, although they have more of an Eastern European spirit (I see a mixture of various Yugoslav prog-rockers whom I really love: it is a certain mixture of instrumental compositions of the late seventies of the 20th century from the groups "IGRA STAKLENIH PERLI","SMAK" and "TAKO". especially in track No. 5). I love you O V R F W R D ! My rating is 5 stars.
