4 stars This one is really interesting for fans of the old school of neo. First of all I must say it took me a long time to get this CD. I read the favourable reviews, but then I saw many others on bands that I found they did not add much to the musical scene, at least to me. so I was not in a hurry anyway. When I finally decided to get this CD I was not expecting much. Boy, was I wrong! Wonderful melodies, superb musicanship and a very fine lead singer. Yes, the music is very much in the neo prog vein of old Fish era Marillion, but they do have a personality and they sound fresh and exciting all the way through the entire CD.

I'm really surprised they are not as well known as they should be. If you have any doubts just listen to a track like The Letter: this highly emotional song alone is worth the price of the CD! Its slowly built up with fine guitar lines and wonderful symphonic keybords help to add the tension implied in the lyrics as the story unfolds to make a terrific melodical explosion at the end. It gives me goose bumps everytime I hear it. and there's 8 more winners to make this one of the finest neo prog albums of the new millenium. NO fillers here. I really hope this band release new stuff like that in the near future. Highly recommended indeed!
