3 stars You will find something like Pink Floyd meets Pallas on the kind of music Also Eden is playing. Of course this might not satisfy what the Pink Floyd fans expect as the keyboard exploration, even though it has a lot, is something that Pink Floyd did in the past. But for sure it will satisfy the expectations of Pallas fans or, put it in broader perspective, neo-prog fans. Why? It has everything that neo-prog fans want: keyboard-drenched music with its ambient, moves the music in relatively slow tempo with nice vocal work.

Even though on melody aspect this album is lacking, the other aspects of musical composition, in my opinion, score average - nothing that's really excellent. there are changes of style throughout the album and some segments sound really good especially in its effort to create ambient. From track 2 "For Bumble" (13:21) the band tries to give musical break with silent segment demonstrating acoustic guitar to accompany vocal. The music flow in relatively slow manner. Harmonies created from all instruments are considered quite good. "The Enemy Within" (12:13) starts with short piano work and the music flows in a relatively slow mode.

Overall, this is an album suitable for neo-prog fans. It's a good one to have.
