4 stars What an interesting album! This one really caught me off guard. At first I glanced at the track times as they range from 2:33 to 4:49. I didn't have high hopes based on my faulty assumption that not a whole lot can happen within such a short amount of time. Boy was I wrong! In fact, there are so many twist and turns within each song and not one is an "epic" that most of us look to as the focal point of an album. The listener really does not have much time to digest certain sections before the song takes a quick twist into something new. As far as the sound, I would describe it as Gazpacho on steroids. That's about the closest thing to Ahoora I have heard but Ahoora is much more ambitious and takes more chances. Lots of heavy parts, electronic elements, jazzy sections...you really have to hear it. And to be honest at first listen I was a little annoyed by the music but for some reason I could not stop listening. Then after about the 5th listen I was hooked. This year I was really looking to find something different than the traditional heavy prog and metal I normally listened to and I found it. I ranked this in my top 10 for year 2010 and I hope more people get to hear this album. An easy 4 stars for this one for their diversity and never stagnant brand of prog. Check it out!
