4 stars WOW! This guys sure can play, and compose! Listen to the sample offered here in Progarchives and tell me if it's not surprising! I hear references of Happy the Man (or was it the other way around? this band came out almost at the same time as Happy the Man but in diferent continents!) and a bit of Zeuhl and VDGG influence. But the scariest thing is the singer...he sounds just like the singer in HTM. Apart from these similarities the compositions are darker and stranger than HTM . Quite a good if not excellent listen. Also there is a 23 minutes bonus track which is great too. Get it if you like dynamic and complex compositions with top notch 70's styled musicianship. Recommended to fans of HTM, Gentle Giant and VDGG.
