From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars I thought the music was excellent, especially Entering new Lands and Spririt of Age.

Unfortunately, whoever mastered the CD was of the belief that louder is always better, and the end result is such poor quality that it's actually uncomfortable to listen to. I checked in an audio editor, and indeed the songs all appear as a nearly solid block of sound, the mix between quiet and loud has been all but destroyed with rife clipping and distortion.

Such a shame, why do people have to ruin music this way? I expect it from mainstream music, but not from real musicians.
