4 stars Relocator's debut album starts quite uncompromisingly. We're dragged directly into traditional, keyboards dominated Prog Metal. In fact, this music quite reminds me of Derek Sherinian's solo output. Dark, raw sounding (yet perfectly polished and clean sounding that we're discover that this raw sound is just disguise for something better).

In fact, combination of this kind of Prog Metal and more Jazz sounds (still the majority of these 60 minutes are Metal toned) is interesting and won't disappoint. There is also featured dozens of solos (both short and long, both keyboard and guitar-like).

Composition is very consistent, whole album sounds like one big, long song. which certainly help, as it gives you impression of one wild ride through depths, shades and colours of this impression that guys from Relocator conceived.

Impressive start, though sometimes it sounds too monotone. That's not necessarily bad way And there are experimental parts like "strings" parts of The Alchemyst and first seconds of 13 Reasons, used more time during this song. Unique sound that I haven't heard before.

4(+), with one peculiar thing that the more I listen this album, the more I like it.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
