5 stars I obtained this CD as a Fathers day prezzie - and tonight it got it's second spin - I was very impressed with the first spin - but on this second whizz on the old CD and with head-phones on because the Mrs has got Corrie on the goggle-box - Absolutely Fantastic - this has everything that a prog CD should have - marvellously long compositions - a 52 MINUTE EPIC with a deliciously catchy repetitive theme thats kept fresh with tempo and slight variations. I will definately buy the whole lot of their CD's on the impact that this has made in my lug-holes. I love the swirling synths and the guitarist picking out very nice licks like flames around the old yule-log at crimbo. This band is swedish like the Flower-Kings and on this composition they have produced a consitency that is very hard to do over 110 minutes or so of music.. Disc 1 has three stand out tracks - Three coloursm Fall of Fame and The price, the last track (The price) is AWESOME. CD 2 is the EPIC - THE OCEAN (52:07). This band is definately influenced by late Gabriel period Genesis - but they have sort of Rush riffs as well , and this band is the nearest to the English band - As Above, So Below (only demo tapes I'm afraid) that I have heard. If you like symphonic progressive rock this is a must have CD - YES YOU MUST HAVE IT - GO AND BUY IT NOW don't skav it from a peer-2-peer you bloody cheepskate! Anyway - If you like your prog long and bombastic with emotive politically oriented lyrics - this CD is definately your BAG. I have to give it 5 stars because it is a MUST HAVE - hope you all agree - TTFN
