5 stars Maybe I am an ignorant, but to tell you the truth, this isn't the kind of music I expected to come from Indonesia.And what a surprise! It was love at 1st hearing, my personal No 1 in 2010 for many months and is also my mostly listened to album in 2010. The only test it didn't pass was the repeated auditions test, after listening some 30 times to it, I felt I need a break.But I listened to it after a 3 months break, fell in love again and decided to write a review. Someone complained it isn't prog. Being tone deaf and also not so good in PA's sub-genres definitions, I won't try to classify it, as long as you like the music it doesn't matter to what sub-genre it belongs. The album is very melodic,with catchy songs but has enough heavy riffs to satisfy all tastes. Very good guitars, piano and keyboards work, vocals are OK, their English doesn't bother me. My favourite tracks are A Romance of Serendipity and In Touch With You. Maybe this album is not for every taste, but it's definitely worth a try. 4.5 stars rounded to 5.
