4 stars This initial effort by Christian US proggers Supernal Endgame shows a lot of promise, at least if you don't get intimidated by this bands distinct worship-spiced variety of progressive rock.

Just about half the album draws the main inspirations from acts like Yes and Kansas, clearly and distinctly symphonic in style but perhaps not as sophisticated as the hardcore fans of this genre might like it. Shifting compositions exploring multiple themes is the name of the game for these efforts, but with just as much emphasis on vocals as instruments, the latter at times taking on more of a backdrop.

This is much more the case for the tracks exploring a more AOR-oriented sound on this disc. More distinctly mainstream oriented these efforts, such as Loving Embrace and Grail, are less challenging material in general and while pleasant enough doesn't really explore any new territories.

Those who have a hard time listening to religious music in general and Christian rock of the worship variety in particular better shy away from this disc though. These guys are proud believers who wants to share their joy with the world at large. And I would guess that this aspect of the CD is the one that will decide whether or not it'll be a success.
