4 stars Very fresh Spock's Beard's album is a strong one. Strong - for one of the greatest band re-invited progressive rock in late 90-s. Strong - between so many useless clones of 70-s real great progressive bands all around.

Music on this album is very eclectic - mostly based on keyboard-led symphonic progressive sound a-la late Kansas works, it combines many other elements - from light neo-prog polished stereotypic sound combinations to complex structures and long compositions to classic symphonic prog drums-guitar-keys attacks, with strong vocals.

Will you like this album or not strongly depends on your musical taste. If you're searching for modern symphonic prog, doesn't damaged too much by neo-prog tricks, with some roots in 70-s, but in whole - sounding as in 90-s, with great musicianship, nice melodies, strong keyboards, but without experimentation - this album is for you.

Recipe as above is not my cup of tea, but it is music I can listen time to time without being bored. And from such listener position my rating for this album is 3,5, so if you're in modern symphonic prog and don't afraid in few pop-elements in music, so this album will be a good purchase for you.
