4 stars This record is probably more art rock than complex progressive, nearly hard rock. The tracks are not very long, and the compositions are not very elaborated. I would easily call it easy prog. There are some very good varied keyboards parts, but it is not predominant here. The listener should find it quite accessible, but I do not find it really catchy and sophisticated. It is well made, and the sound is modern and clean; actually, this record will give their 80's sound, like on the "Time to turn" and "Planets" albums. But those 2 albums have more elaborated keyboards. "Sunset" is a good relaxing Kitaro-esque track. "Horizons" has very good clavinet-like rhythms and choir arrangements, and "Silhouette" may remind you "Another brick in the wall" by Pink Floyd. "Impressions" has an excellent Focus-esque flute solo. It is one of their best album for the guitar sounds.
