3 stars I found this rare record thanks to the site powerful search engine and due to that I am discovering loads of rare prog bands from my country and while some are delivering incredible stuff " The Descending Line in my opinion is not included among those records. There are many rewarding aspects in this record like the strong instrumental performance by the band or the production , but if you care too much about proper vocals you should approach this album with caution.

Among the pros found on this record I will list the opener "Doors of the mind" , "Time to plant Destruction" and the song that gives name to the album, Those are relatively short numbers by prog standards but this guys really show their prog credentials here. Mainly the band seems to be influenced by DT.

And now the cons... the vocals are to be honest a bit annoying. Specially due to the fact that the pronunciation (English of course) is a bit poor and the vocal style of the singer is a bit too 80's based. So that may not be everybody's cup of tea.

In the end we have a good and promising debut album by a young band , I am looking forward to listen to their sophomore effort to see what this guys can deliver in the near future. Their first offering I found it to be pretty interesting and energetic...
