5 stars This is one of the forgotten gems from the early 90s. I originally bought this CD not having anykind of clue what kind of material it contains. The sheer instrumental virtuosity almost gave me a headache at first, but slowly I began to understand it better and better. After a while this very album became my personal favorite among the few hundred progCDs in my collection. Yes, you read it right: this is my favorite album of all time, by and band, in any genre. It's that good. With my limited english it would be impossible trying to descripe the multilayered music of the album, so I leave it to the listener to discover its greatness. Let me just say that Markus Steffen, Oliver Holzwarth and Alex Holzwarth play so ridiculously well together that they make other bands in the genre sound like carage bands. This is the tightest- sounding guitar-bass-drums combo I've ever heard. But rather than the technical side, it's the melodies and various interesting rhythmsections that burns into your mind. Markus Steffen's lyrics are very complex and full of metaphores and philosophical references and at that they go together well with the music. The 10-minute album- closer "These Empty Places" leaves me breathless every time. This is how progressive rock should be made. This very song is closest to perfection I can think of.
