2 stars Well, what a joke... The vocals aren't bad they are just some kind of ennerving and don't really fit into the music. The style is too less self-contained. There are too many "inspired" things or even copied things. Listen to "Why am I here?"... Strangely it sounds the same as Symphony X's "Wicked"... Oh NO! They've changed the speed... And then "The 1st Chapter"... You feel more than reminded of Symphony X's "The Odyssey"..., Biosfear with the obvious beginning of Dream Theater's "Dance of Eternity". All in all it's a mixture of numerous progmetal-bands, the most obvious are Symphony X, Dream Theater and Fates Warning. The Album is not such flop but it's too poorly conceived yet but I think with the time they'll find their own style.
