5 stars In my opinion, Traced In Air is one of the best prog albums ever created. Literally the only fault I find with this album is how short it is. I would love to have more! From beginning to end this album is gripping, beautiful, melodic, technically brilliant, and fun. Cynic really topped themselves with this beauty of an album.

Traced In Air, first of all, is perfectly mixed and produced. Cynic's trademark vocorder effect is in full prominence, which I think is absolutely great. All of the instruments shine through and have unique parts all their own. I think the most impressive aspect of this album is the drumming. It never stops! Somehow the drumming is very busy and very technical without being overwhelming. The drummer creates a wall of sound upon which the rest of the instruments can paint their masterpiece.

This is an album that will forever live in my "favorites" playlist. I simply just cannot get enough of it! This is what prog music should be. Easily 5 stars- an essential part of any progressive music collection.
