3 stars German symphonic prog is not like English symphonic prog. Every country has their own take on this genre.

This is their third album and to my knowledge; their breakthrough album too. I guess their brilliant cover art work itself would shift a lot of LPs. And those who bought this LP because of the art work would probably not be that disappointed. Very melodic symph prog with German narration. The music has a fusion and krautrock tinge, but it also have a lot of references to Eloy, Agitation Free, Camel and Saga too. And yes, this is a concept album. The story is..... well, I don't know. Neither do I care too.

The sound is mostly based on keyboards and gentle guitar picking. No guitar or keyboard walls in other words. Each track is really understated and given a lot of air.

There is no killer tracks here, but the music really grows on me in leaps and bounds for every listening session. I am really getting into this album now. In other words; this is a very good album well worth checking out.

3.5 stars
