Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is the band's third effort, and the closest to rock in their repertoire. They took a close look at hard rock, with guitar solos and and a more present bass. A concept album aroud, you guessed it, three old school friends, and what they became in life. The concept is well elaborated, with a song for every character. ''Peel the paint'' became a bona fide in their live setlist, and the guitar solo, an occasion to jam. Still progressive, maybe less mature and more playful than acquiring the taste, but definitley more melodic. Still a pretty medieval touch is felt throughout the album, wich add to the alredy beutiful melodies. Not perfect, but still a great album. 4/5
