4 stars Realistically, I'd give the album 3.5 stars more than 4. The band reminds me of Grey Lady down with better vocals. I do like the emotion in the music compared to GLD. The musicianship is also superior to GLD.

I am generally critical of American Progbands because I find them sterile for the most part but this CD left me with a warm feeling. It is the only album from the band I've heard but it moved me enough to explore the rest of their library.

I found it energetic and engaging. Thoughtful songwriting blends with above average musicianship and some original ideas. Everyone compares this work to Genesis and IQ and a few other bands but in this genre, who doesn't sound like someone else?

The object of cutting a progressive album is to, in some way, pay homage to those who paved the way yet branch out and do more with what's been offered up by the masters. It's truly hard to come up with something totally and completely original.

Illuvatar accomplished the goal with this album. It shows tribute and goes in other exciting directions. If you like good solid progressive rock with great hooks and melodies... add this to your collection.
