4 stars Actually, I'm not sure why people hate this album. Because this band is some kind of miracle, pure Prog from barren Uzbekistan lands. However, this is not Jazz anymore, it's more like Symphonic Prog. Long album, very long with some parts that I call "static radio chatter" (studio talking, backstage fun) which is not interesting at all, even it gives this album unexpected twist.

For example this little (actually huge, 20 minutes toddler) Parallels is long, continuing, full of soloing and impression giving track has. This distinct Fromuz style (you will know it when melody suddenly is interrupted and this "change" comes).

This track is the main pinnacle, the best track if you wish. The rest is quite debatable, but certain atmospheric elements are there. Some jazzy jaming in Desert Circle

I wish I would be recommended to listen this album earlier, I was quite awed by a lot of flak this album got, but it turned out to be good shot for me.

If this record is something, it is uneven, unbalanced, full of ideas, some of them came through and some remained stuck on half-way there. But this album is interesting for me and most of material here is enjoyable.

4(+), from me. Opinion will vary here a lot I suppose.
