5 stars I remember my self, being in the late '90s a progmetal fan, searching to find this cd because I listen in the radio the track "New Jerusalem". When I finnaly find it I left behind every Fates Warning and Dream theater cds and listening again and again, over and over this cd! Well lets strar from the weak side of this cd. The production isnt that good, the vocals sometimes are a little bit out of tune (also too melodramatic for others!) and the synth sounds are ...bad and bad producted. In the other hand this is a music full of passion, beautifully composed and structured, with always a sence of creativity. Comblicated but also melodic, even the long pasages and the instumental parts are so intresting fitting enormously within a song form. And there is something more here: personality! They play prog metal(other call them neoprog(?))but there is nothing like F.W or D.T or even Psychotic Walls here! They have their own voice, their style goes beyond the standar prog metal. Classical influenses, jazz-fusion ,even greek "ways" (listen the enormous begining of "COLOURS". Great melodies on New jerusalem. "To count the stars" is a big journey with strange harmonies, complex rythms and an epic conclusion. So If you searching for the best 90's Greek metal cd, this is it! Inteligent, high passionate music in a complex and melodic form!(Next alboum is also nice but ther's something missing from Sculpture on ice's magic!
