5 stars I was instantly hooked on AES ever since I heard the fantastic song "Impulse" on Guitar Hero II. Then another good song "Anything" was featured on another Guitar Hero game, along with "Sun Of Pearl" on Tony Hawk's American Wasteland. These songs, plus another one, made the great Ameliorate EP, released in 2008.

For their debut album, the duo of Zach Kamins and Andy Gentile called upon the help of Jonas Reingold and Roine Stolt. In the end, An Endless Sporadic made an album better than anything that The Flower Kings ever accomplished.

The album opens in a relaxing mood with "Waking Hours", which is a nice acoustic song musically stating the main themes of the album. The energetic "From The Blue" follows, and this is a real treat. It is keyboard driven, which is unlike anything on Ameliorate, and features some great, fast-paced melodies. "Point Of No Return" is a decent track, it doesn't really do much for me. The piano-led "Shell" excels and is the best song so far (Reingold adds some great jazzy bass). Following on the jazz sound is "Treading Water", an even better song than "Shell". "Treading Water" features a tight guitar solo that is amazing. It is easily the second best song on the album. Another song that doesn't do that much for me is "The Triangular Race Through Space", which is prog metal.

"Eternal Bloom" is the best song on the album, definitely. The guitars are just so fantastic. Following this is another great song, "Subliminal Effect". Closing out this album in epic fashion is "Beyond The Horizon".

This is truly a great album and makes at least into my TOP 20 ALBUMS OF ALL TIME.
