4 stars A good follow-up to "A fine day to exit". Nothing too original here, although the songs are still excellent.

"Harmonium", "Balance" and "Closer" start smoothly with a lot of keys. "Are You There ?" is a marvelous ballad followed by a short instrumental "Childhood Dream". Then comes the rage again, like on "Judgement" or "Panic" with the song "Pulled Under At 2000 Metres A Second". "A Natural Disaster" is a ballad again, very close to "Barriers" on the last album. The last three songs "Flying", "Electricity" and "Violence" complete the feeling of peace that is again dominant on this album.

Rating: 85/100
