5 stars The 4th installment from Garden Wall shows them further defining their heavier "metal" element while still maintaining all the other influences that make them so unique.... This album begins with the 34 minute opus "Chemo" which starts off rather heavy then weaves its way through a myriad of atmospheric and rhythmic changes....

Once again the keyboards/ synth provide a background to Garden Wall's music which gives them their 70's influenced sound which is one of the things that makes this band so unique.... There is a slight "Technical" feel in various places due to the inventive rhythms and time changes which at times gives it an almost "technical metal" feel.... As if this band could have been one of the originators of the style had they been around in the late 70's / early 80's....

Overall I find this to be an awesome album full ofcaptivating ideas and excellent musicianship.... Whether you like progressive rock or progressive metal, this album is worth checking out!!!!
