4 stars Great album full of instrumental parts. The guitarist and singer Mark McCrite complements really well with Eric Norlander, and Don Schiff with the stick contributes too, even in the songwriting.

In the CD 1 Sky is falling is a superb opener with a great keyboard riff and a heavy guitar side. The melody line is really good too. Dream in red and Better View are great tracks too. The first one harder and the second one more in a soft way but with a stunning instrumental interlude. Outside the painted walls and Ptolemy are very good and non conventional instrumentals, pure progrock. Revolution Road is mainly instrumental where Norlander stands out with the keyboards.

CD 2, is good but not so homogeneous as the CD 1. The best tracks are Enjoy the weather, Pay your dues, Eden burns (with some church organ sounds) and House of cards. The instrumental interaction between the three musicians and the drummer is really good. The album closes with the epic instrumental After the revolution. In the vein of Mariner (from Brutal Architecture), is a climatic track in a soft way with piano and guitars. Good piece, but maybe unnecessarily long.

Great addition for any progrock collection.
