4 stars 4,5 stars realy!!! In my humble opinion, this third albun of the North American band TILES entitled "Presents of Mind" , is his best work and with certainty one of the best albums of heavy-prog to the late 90's. The main influence is the Canadian band RUSH, however there are still other influences also evident, as for instance QUEENSRYCHE, ENCHANT among others. In this disk the band presents a work very well elaborated where the heavy approach of their melodies (with excellent counterpoints between the guitars and the bass) they almost always presents intercalated sections with more moderate themes but that contains the same strong melodic appeal . My highlights are the track 2 "Modification", track 4 "Facing Failure", track 6 " Ballad of the Sacred Cows", track 8 "Taking Control " and the track 9 "Removes Procedures." The bonus tracks are excellent with prominence for the track 12 "Token Pledge (live) ", that it is one of the best moments of his first work of 1994. The 4 musicians are all excellent and my rate is 4 stars!!!
