4 stars I must admit I waited a long time to listen to this band. Don't know why, but maybe because of this site I discovered a lot of great bands. I mention Pendragon, Arena, Collage, Symphony X, Riverside, Magic Pie, Gentle Giant etc. So time must be the factor.... I started with Deadwing and right now I'm working my way through their catalogue. In Absentia is a great album too.

Deadwing is a very good album to get into their music in my opinion. The influence of Pink Floyd is very obvious, although there are also metal influences. Everything is blended together to become very enjoyable and listenable. The highlight for me is Arriving Somewhere But Not Here. The overall sound is hypnotic and driven, with emphasis on melody and details. Al the sounds are well structured and everything is in its place. The vocals sometimes remind me of Beatles (am I allowed To Say that?).

**** for this album. There is a chance they deliver a album that I can rate 5 stars. Recommended!
