3 stars Torman Maxt is a strange band and most definate an acquired taste. The reason for this being a stand out band is the vocals to be brutally honest. And when dealing with the Bible; only brutal honesty will do.

The lyrical matters on the part 2 of this two parts albums series is Jobs Book from the Bible. As with many other prog bands; Torman Maxt is a Christian band and not ashamed of that.

The first part of this series got some serious panning. But I am happy to report that part 2 is miles better than part 1. Trying to ignore the vocals, which is not bad, but still very different from most other vocals I have experienced before in the prog world; the music is actually good. The focus is on Yes like symphonic prog and less on progressive metal this time. Kansas springs to mind. Yes, Kansas is the best reference point for this album.

The quality is good throughout. There is no bad or any great tracks. The musicians does a competent job throughout. My gripe is the love/hate type of vocals, which is a recurring theme throughout my reviews of their four albums (deja vu !), and the lack of some truly great songs. But this is easily their best ever album. Good but not great.

3 stars
