4 stars This band have just recently come to my attention mainly because of their association with Magenta's Rob Reed who has helped oversee the release of this their debut album.Although labelled as 'neo prog' with occasional nods to Marillion the keyboards and melodies if anything remind me more of a heavier proggier version of Alan Parsons Project.

The ten tracks add up to a crowd pleasing 67 minutes with plenty of twists and turns to keep you involved. The band colectively are excellent especially the strong drumming adding a sturdiness to their music without ever enveloping it. Atmospheric and well produced, the songs are crafted in the best neo prog traditions. Although not as good as say IQ's Frequency this is a very promising debut effort that bodes well for the future.3.5 stars rounding up to 4.
