5 stars What in the world!? Why doesn't the archieves have a more detailed description of this band!? A band that seemingly came out of no where and produced only one album that is either on par or beating some of the most acclaimed Symphonic Prog albums! Jesus! Seriously... I was never a huge fan of Close to the Edge and after hearing this album I see exactly where Yes went wrong in some parts of their "Masterpiece." Also, I would really have to say that I hear some parts that were probably inspired by Uriah Heep. So if you are a Heep fan, you'll especially dig this. This album is a must listen to of any member of this site, and especially if Symphonic is your favorite genre because this album has everything. Jazz elements, synth guitar and drums that will blow your mind.

The only real weak part of this album, or so I can see, is in the song Modane Train. Not that it is a bad song but it is a little too poppy and seems a little off from the rest of the album. And maybe some people might have a hard time admitting that this is Symphonic Prog because of the fact that no 20 minute epics exist in this album... but I don't feel that that is even necissary. Not that big of a dent put on the album if you ask me.

It's true that a lot of people might not agree with my rating of 5 stars on this album, but seriously, after you take into consideration that it was Symphonic Slam's only album and then they were basically never heard from again... it raises a little attention. Good, better, bestest than I expect out of any one hit wonder. I love it.
