From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars A V. good and oft times even relaxing fusion of Post/Math, Death and Atmospheric (not an expert on either one - - just a gut take of the pigeon holing) - - should even caresses the inner ear of some alleged elders amongst us who may have accumulated some creativity walls or biases over the years regarding the prog worthiness of some of the more recent tentacles of the brand. Noteworthy are the gripping vocal shifts and passionate ethereal/harmonic passages and arrangements. A nice surprise as I do have a tendency to abhor overly aggressive vocals, yet, in this work, I can appreciate the artistic and emotional vocal transitions (which are of course enhanced by the musical brilliance as well).
