5 stars Space and Pride.

What more could be said? It's a very good album. Yes, behind a cheesy cover that looks like the health card of the Quebec Province rests an album full of grandeur, making hard to believe this is only a four-piece band. As usual, stellar hypnotic Gibson Flying V solos, inventive bass lines (so good) and the Deutch accent so thick, even light cannot escape from it.

Starts with a huge rainstorm and ends with grace, the band will reach perfection with Ocean; so think of this album like almost-perfection. Yes, there is a little filling in the end, but just a little. One thing I particulary like is the voice acting in Eloy. It takes more space this time, with a temptress that sounds like Dalbello (or a young Geddy Lee!) and my favorite: the God voice. I simply ADORE this Yaweh-type of divine intervention in a song. It's creates the set of space perfectly! Once again, fans of Frank Frazetta or Jim Burns fantasy drawings will be served!

Considering the level of Ocean or Mighty Echoes (like 7 stars out of 5), this is a 5 hands down.

Let the geek in you soar.
