5 stars This is quintissential modern prog at its best (..and very English). It's got a bit of most of the sub-genres, symphonic, neo-prog and even some guitar solos that would keep a prog metal fan happy.

The key here is melody, perfect performances and interesting songs. It's this accessibility that puts it into Crossover Prog territory. Much of it is quiet and contemplative, you kinda fell like your in the English countryside at times.

The title track is an epic masterpiece that never loses your attention for the whole 23 minutes. The developing melodies throughout the album, interspersed with interesting musical breaks, great guitar solos and the obligatory range of instruments contributing to the whole.

Definitiely worth 5 stars for it's perfect representation of the genre.
