2 stars In the beginning, I note that I have decided to focus on "A Change of Seasons" track in detail and I have mostly excluded the cover performances out of my evaluation. "A Change of Seasons" looks like an end product of a written formula of a mixture of modern progressive metal and a nostagic approach. It mostly consists of sour acoustic passages between repetitive arrays of clockwork -well-designed- riffs. Its unnecessarily excessive length refers to an amateurish 70's spirit. The whole structure is tried to be supported by some weak lyrics and there is barely musical coherence between the parts except some flashbacks. The whole album seems to be produced in a profit-based manner rather than a musical concern.
