4 stars This is a real gem of an album and a treat for fans of 70's prog brought up to date with lush production.

Based on the 7 deadly sins, obviously, but with intelligent contemporary lyrics, this is a class album of carefully crated melodic prog that draws upon influences from an earlier era without sounding like a rip off or an obvious pastiche. Christina's voice is achingly good here, backed up by some nice guitar work and keyboards with a tight and powerful rhythm section

Although most of the tracks are over 10 minutes, they never drag, but are given enough time to develop. If you are a fan of strong, melodic and well-produced prog, do not hesitate to get this one!
