3 stars The second album from this Japanese orchestra.

Pomp rock is not officially an own genre within the ProgArchives community. Hence the use of the Crossover genre here. But truth to be told, Vienna plays Pomp Prog in the same alley as Magnum and Saga. That means pompous synths, pompous vocals, pompous guitars and pompous songs in the area in between symphonic prog, neo prog and progressive metal.

Quality wise, this album is good. It also have some very good melody lines. But I am not able to pinpoint a single great, memorable song from this album though. That is my main gripe with this album. But I still like Vienna's brand of pomp rock and this is a band with great skills too. Unfortunate; they did not manage to unlock all of their skills on this album and that is a pity. It is still a good album though.
