4 stars This symphonic gem is the Norwegian bands debut album and they lean heavily on the influences of King Crimson,PFM,Genesis and Gentle Giant and newer symphonic acts like Anglagard and White Willow.This album is chock full of densely layered keyboards,fluid guitar melodies,great bass work and crisp,jazzy drumming although I do think the vocals are a little weak.This album consists of four tracks:Serenade for 1652 which is a short 41 second prelude to the 28 minute long epic Hinterland followed by Rubato Industry which alternates between pastoral and heavy,intense instrumental passages and closes with the instrumental Clair Obscur.This album harkens back to the glory days of symphonic prog and is a must have for your prog collection.4 stars,highly recommended.
