5 stars I was lucky enough to get a promo copy of this after following the band since their 2010 EP "As We Know It'. I was a big fan of that first release and I had extremely high hopes for this album to top it, especially in terms of production as I think that was the main thing thatt would have held the last one behind compared to other international prog acts. This album is everything I wanted from the seamless passage through tracks to the stunning musicianship.

Hemina really darken their sound up on a lot of tracks like "The Boy is Dead" and "Hunting is for Women" but this just adds to the complexity and power of the journey. I really loved how much better all the songs from "As We Know It" sound too.

Hemina are back with their trademark harmonies, a lot more guitar solos (which isn't bad by me) and a much improved rhythm section.

This is a wonderful concept album and after 10+ listens I can truly say it will be one of my picks for top albums of 2011.

Highlights: To Conceive a Plan Haunting Me! Divine
