4 stars On the other hand, this one has really got me, as strict opposite to previous "Landmarq" (also Neo Prog) album. Repeating various synth/keyboards (this kind) sounds on Riding in Time, as changing of moods, nice graduation of songs (even about half-real and not so much existent, it drags me up). But speaking generally, this is album as whole is great connection between advantages of Neo Prog and Classical Music (mostly in terms of keyboards/guitar elements, just hear guitar in The Ascent, is it reminding you 19th century now ?). And songs follows and songs pleases and we all are happy. Or are we not ? Why shouldn't we be, when only bad thing here I can imagine is that in this variety of synth types used here, one or two I don't like too much (this brass sounding one for example). Tracks are poetic and there's strong feeling of soaring (common, 12 minutes ballad about beautifulness? that's great, isn't it ?). OK, there's some not so thorough stuff in Meditation, but we can't expect much from a song with this name, can we ? Nevermind, it's not a bad song, it just doesn't fit. Like spring, sticking out of couch.

5(-), but what' the most important thing, it attracted me all the time (OK, except Medic (T)ation
