4 stars I accidently found the website of Konchordat andi had there the opportunity to listen to two of the tracks from this album. I pre-ordered the CD instantly.

In other reviews of this album i read that this album is seen as solid Neo-Prog with no new influences. In a way this is true. But this music touched me in a very nice way. And that is what music is all about: touch your emotions.

The first track is a nice mix of neo-prog and pieces of hard rock, with an epic end. It is the longest track of the album, but i enjoy every minute of it. Then, almost fluently, the second track "A Coming of Age" starts. The tempo is a little higher and there is a nice mixture of guitar and keybord. The third track "Panic Room" is absolutely insane and for me the best of the album, with a fantastic rhythm. With "Heaven's Gate" the music goes again in a mix of neo-prog and hard rock. "Scars Inside" is for me the track that least impressed me, but good nontheless. This track makes me hope that their next album contains a bit more atmospheric sections, combined with the rougher sections in the music. The last track "Time to Go" is again a piece of music that touches me as very nice and a worthy end to this beautiful album.

Four stars, and well earned.
