5 stars Well, I wasn't expecting what I had first premonised (basically expecting it to be really good, but not as good as this)

With only 4 songs, and just under 50 minutes, it was very easily digestable, not boring whatsoever and always fun to listen to.

I loved how this supergroup takes 3 generations of prog and uses it to a creative advantage.

It's also a mixture of cultures, mixing gods of English & Swedish prog together.

1. In Darkest Dreams - The longest and most interesting song. Full of amazing instrumenbtal sections and some interesting vocals, along with some amazing contrapuntal saxophone melodies, this song is one amazing piece of music. 10/10

2. The Canterbury Sequence - Yes, you would think these guys where from Canterbury with this little ditty (well it's not that little). The first part is amazing, with the almost scat like rhythms, and some pretty cool istrumntal sections, being very impressed with the piano playing. 10/10

3. Up Hill From Here - Very rocking. Great chorus and some pretty interesting lyrics. 10/10

4. The Music That Died Alone - The more beautiful and harmonius part of the album. Great ending. 10/10

CONCLUSION: It's just a perfect album, what more do you need.

arcane-beautiful | 5/5 |
