2 stars This is the last album from this Dutch neo band. And neo it is, believe me!

If ever you would like to discover what the combination of "Marillion", some "Yes" feel and Freddie Mercury on the vocals could have led to, the shortest way to find out is to listen to the opening number "Hail To Your Heart". If you would set aside these "characteristics", there is nothing else to add. I guess that you get the idea?

But the worse is yet to come: a very heavy "Yes" oriented song ("90125" period). One option of course: press next as soon as you can to avoid some collateral damages.

This album is not precisely a good one: the average tracks are following one after another. Borderline prog metal and without conviction ("Peace Of The Brave").

"Buried Inside" is vaguely reminiscent of the new wave and reminds me of the early "Ultravox!" but less appealing of course. After a loose middle part, the mood gets into the neo territories for a while. Vocals are Foxx oriented. What a change: from Freddie to John. But they were genious. I can't say the same about "Egdon Head".

This is an album which lacks of personality; highlights are not to be found (at least I couldn't) and the chaotic "As Ripley Would Say?" is not any better. It holds some metal lines here and there, and to be honest a good finale featuring spacey guitar.

The whole doesn't score over two stars in my book. Average at best.
