4 stars This was my first introduction to Nathan Mahl, due to my affection for the one song album and the technical prowess required to sustain tension throughout. So was I impressed with this mostly instrumental piece of music? Yeah, mostly. Being instrumental makes it have double the difficulty of keeping my attention, and at 54 minutes in length, it's not exactly a cozy easy-to- immerse-in tune. But for the most part I was, and still do occasionally have the patience to sit through its length and enjoy it on the way. It's an interesting musical style, I'm not privy to all the musical back knowledge to know why exactly I find it enjoyable, but it definitely was on the first and following listens. Playing it as I write this to remind me that it is a challenging and difficult single song album to get immersed in, but once you do, have to add it to your collection somewhere in the instrumental segment. Perhaps my two quarrels with the piece is the lack of vocals and the drag that comes with being mostly instrumental and 54 minutes long. Apart from that, there's plenty to keep happy about for most prog fans.
