3 stars 25 years after it was recorded, fans of Osiris can finally get to experience this concept album.

Recorded when the band were at the height of their popularity, it is an effort that features all the facets this band's stylistic expression served up in a nice package, a sound that most easily can be described as Camel. Lush symphonic textures, mostly bass driven energetic passages with richer multilayered synths and elongated guitar riffs and a slight seasoning of Arabian inspired elements. The latter the main element separating this band from the aforementioned UK band. Some themes does bear a closer resemblance to Eloy in style, but by and large this is a band exploring the same musical universe as Andrew Latimer & company. Osiris do so in style though, and I would think most followers of Camel should find this disc to be of interest as well.

All in all a good but not strikingly innovative production, but with a unique concept explored in a mostly instrumental manner.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
