5 stars VIOLET DISTRICT's "Terminal Breath" is one of my ALL-TIME-CLASSIC MASTERPIECES in the neo-progressive scene. 100% top-level-musicians playing neoprog at it's best with strong and powerful high-energetic melody-lines.

STRICTLY RECOMMANDED for fans of Marillion, Twelfth Night, IQ, Pendragon and Co. This album has the "magic touch" and a wonderful flow @ listining !!! No fillers , only killers.

The 2CD-remaster comes with a highly recommanded live concert on the 2nd CD containing 2 more brilliant tracks never released on a studio-album. "Capillary Action" and "Principles Of Alternation" are wonderful songs you won't miss !!! Normally studio-version are a MUST for the remastered version of "Terminal Breath" but unfortanetely they never find a way on the CD....what a pity !

For all fans: I found a 12:15 long studio-version of "Principles Of Alternation" on the CD "Progfever Vol. 1" see for further details.

Finally, I was very sad about the group splitted up after this album. But some members rejoined to new group "RPWL" later, well worth to check out, even the style is not exactly the same anymore.

I give 5 stars for this - MUST HAVE - timeless essential master-piece.
