4 stars This album had me hooked immediately. The beautiful lyrical opening of Snowtorch Pt 1 lubricates the ears for the epicness ;) to come. Then the piano and male/female harmonies start. Bliss. I love it when an artist is confident enough to write songs that reach the 20 min mark. Phideaux does it with ease, and throws in a little middle eastern influenced surprise at 17:45.

Helix is a great bridge between Pt 1 and 2, with a continuation of the musical theme and the wonderful female vocals.

Snowtorch Pt 2 sounds slightly darker and heavier too Pt 1, but is still a brilliant piece of writing and performing. A couple of the riffs from Pt 1 get a slight twist, which keeps the song fresh.

Have only had limited exposure to Phideaux, but Snowtorch makes me want to explore more.

4.5 out of 5.
