Prog Reviewer
5 stars The musical geniuses behind GLASS HAMMER have once again produced an absolutely fabulous concept album. This album is a melting pot of everything that is related to progressive rock: Hammond organ, Mellotron, Mini-Moog, extended instrumental passages, a beautiful cover-painting by artist Bruce Huffmann, a brilliant concept story and top quality songs. The lyrics tell the story about a young man who listens to his collection of progressive rock concept albums. When listening to the albums he begins to hear alien voices between and within' the songs, telling him to build a space machine in order to plan for a future alien arrival. The musicians are very talented, and Fred Schendel is without doubt one of the finest keyboard players around today in the progressive genre. Arjen Lucassen of AYREON is doing a guest appearance on this album playing additional lead guitars. The music is firmly rooted in the '70's progressive rock. Musical reminiscences that springs to mind are EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER, The FLOWER KINGS, GENESIS, NATHAN MAHL, PINK FLOYD, SPOCK'S BEARD, TRANSATLANTIC and YES. The track "Revelation" is a future all-time progressive classic. What we have here is one of the best progressive albums of the year, and it probably will stand the test of time and become a future classic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED...!
