3 stars Well, the debut album from Advent is a bit of a split personality.

From the obvious Saga and The Human League references in songs like Maginot Line and the ghastly Trompe L'Oeil to more epic, pastorial songs in the likes of Alison Waits. I prefer the latter one. Thankfully, they went down the epic pastorial route on the follow up album Cantus Firmus. An album which also include Alison Waits as a bonus track. But enough of the future; back to this album, their debut album.

Their debut album has a split personality. So much that it is more or less two or more albums put into one. I honestly do not know what Advent wanted to do with their music. But thankfully; the follow up album gave that answer and everything on their debut album is forgiven. That includes a couple of ghastly songs where it seems like Advent want to become a 1980s revival synth pop band like The Human League. Just like Saga did some years ago, btw. The good songs here are really superb so I will give this album three stars.
