3 stars When I saw this album being the top for this year, I listened to it right away and it was pretty good to me. Incredible instrumentals, good sense of melodies and patterns. The vocal parts were pretty deceiving though when they became to intense. A bit Yes-ish, Gentle Giant-ish, Genesis-ish, Renaissance-ish, Jethro Tull-ish, etc. Just like good old prog but with something new and fresh. A bad point though is all the too intense parts were everything was cliché. Good use of keyboards in that album and great guitar parts. It's my first encounter with Phideaux too so I'll watch him a bit more.

Good album to buy for lovers of good ol' symphonic prog.
