5 stars There are some album's that make me proud to be a 'prog head' and this is one of them, a masterclass in progressive rock music if ever there was one. I dont think there is anything i would change about this album, well the vocals in the odd track is a little too low in the mix but when the music is this perfect who cares?

From the beautiful SONG WITHIN A SONG and the almost Genesis like groove of ANOTHER NIGHT, this is one prog masterpiece, but like every lover of this album, they really do save the best song for last, it is the epic instrumental LUNAR SEA where the true power comes from on this album. Musicmanship? ahh you havent heard anything yet, i dont think i really hear vocalist/guitarist/ flute player Andrew Latimer play a chord as his fluent lead lines take over with the keyboards and smother the tracks in beauty and grace, like i said the vocals could be louder but i guess thats just my modern prog side comming through;

Aristillus - 8/10 Song Within a Song - 10/10 Chord Change - 10/10 Spirit of the Water - 8/10 Another Night - 10/10 Air Born - 9/10 Lunar Sea - 10/10

My Conclusion? As i said before this album is a masterpiece and a true jem in the Caterbury Scene, i can totally see why its Mikael Åkerfeldt from Opeth's favourite album.
