From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars I am conscientious of many things and references that become about this disc, in fact I only found a site where it is appraised to him like which it is, a great work, is something decepciónate not to find more references, this worked for me is very representative in the personnel, since this CD was the one that peculiarly, I say it by I title of the first track "The Truth Will Seth You Free", because that was what made release to me and to help me to know the truth (the progressive rock) then my truth was PINK FLOYD, and is not that it says that this badly to listen PINK FLOYD, only that me I have given account of which there are many people who close their thoughts and elevate to a band at fanaticism levels, that does not leave anything good because music is just as the life she is progressive, if they do not create véanlo to me we are born, we reproduce and we died, but in addition we learn, we expressed ourselves and we felt, the life is not linear, everything tends to be gradual, this disc is thus, multicolor is Progressive Rock, Hard Rock, Jazz, Fusion, Traditional RIO and, but all they thus do not see it many likes disc one to others the two, to many plus any since they see it with eyes of it criticizes and before listening to it and after, they relate it to its influences reducing to him was worth to the work of this band, many say that they try to imitate to YES, GENESIS, KING CRIMSON, CAMEL and otos, is difficult until for the people that are customary to this style of music to appreciate so coarse work, third of the grouping, is not that they do not understand it, which happens is that when I listen to it she did not know the bands before mentioned what did that my taste was clean of influences, since did not know the references, I go to make a reference that somebody said to me of this disc, "if there were taxed 25 years ago serious a classic one of reference ", and I responded" with this these saying to me do not have merito to be new ", did not respond, all we are anxious to demonstrate our knowledge, it is necessary to give opportunity the new thing although this is as many say and perhaps they are right regressive, also I am of the idea that music must advance and not back down, but we do not fall in sobreestimation of which already it was made also is necessary to give an opportunity the new thing, with this I mean that this CD does not request anything to him to" Such From Topographic Oceans "of YES," The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway "of GENESIS," Network "of KING CRIMSON," Tarkus "of ELP and to" Animals "of PINK FLOYD being this I complete of my super favorites, and I say it and that it will bother to many with this commentary, but is that in the veins of this disc they subsist the bands of the past as an historical reference and create a unique symbiosis. In disc one they present/display the épico cut "The Truth Will Seth You Free", fantastic from all the points of view, the instruments mix to usanza of that fantastic "Relayes" strong passages and very expressive, as it is not necessary to be a tenor to reflect feeling and conscience, the líricas show things to us that are very evident and that sometimes we forgot or we roast because we did not remember them, the evolution human and its overwhelming passage on the Earth, clear that this has a Christian connotation, good in fact all the disc has it, a subject very hard in all the senses, with five parts this, Monkey continues him "Business", not is more than satire of interests of man and as it staggers in the bad or good always conscientious present life of that this represents, "the Black and White" as it says the days of black and white the common thing and excellent of the being with respect to the time and the lost time of this it follows the instrumentation "Christianopel" or Christian opening to him, a space instrumentation with touch psicodélicos, "Silent Inferno" is that quiet hell that all we lived when feeling to us outside a honesty world and or that him lack to the world, "The Navigator" remembranza of the trips of the man is one, another continent tomorrow other worlds and by I yesterday complete "Human Vox" is that message that we loved that all in the Earth knew, I I am you and you are I. In disc two it would not have so that to be despised, because it contains subjects that equal moves, in another context of music even sounds to another disc, is to the variety which I made notice in the beginning of the revision, here we began with "Genie In A Bottle" that does not know a encerado genius in a boat, the head is a boat that sometimes is difficult to develop for some whereas for golds is easier, but they do not seem to have interest in removing it, sounds reasonable, "Fast Lane" considers to continue with the part of the previous disc with "Monkey Business", of seemed ideas of human motions and music, and to conclude with which the part of the good could be considered to happen to the part of badly, this it is the interval "Grand Old World" is remembranza of our physical world, "Soul Vortex", "Rollin The Dice", "The Devils Danceschool", "Man Overboard", "Solitary Shell" and "Devils Playground" is a species of my saga, the this best one connected than the first part that could be considered like dark reflection, in this it starts off the emotions and music take dyes very different from the initials, this conduct battle the styles Jazz, dark Progressive Rock not as much as DER GRAFT GENETRATOR GO, but it has his in the final subject, all the líricas are based on predictions, fear anguishes, nostalgias and so that nonextraterrestrial, the part culmínate of emotions and fusions more see in "Devils Playground" fantastic a épica rola with a fantastic interpretation that shows many some compound in conjunction by Roine STOLT and Takings BODIN, again I will say that these minds created something very good like in "Flower Power" and its "Garden Of Drem" . In summary it is a disc perhaps as many say very common with very good moments and of an a very good interpretation, I will say that in this disc you fit three of YES, two to them of GENESIS, reason why I will say that she is more than that is a testimony of the progressive rock you you decide if it is or not something recomedable. The truth will make free, we will stay us against the lie, With this heart greater than America, We will fight the fire with fire, Never plus a kiss will seal the lies.
