5 stars Here it comes, a real great prog metal band without sounding too much like D.T., on the other hands it sounds like Fates warning, but with great nuances. Alder still has one of the greatest voice of prog metal, the guitars, lead by Van Dyke are powerfull and contains a lot of catchy melodies and all the chorus, have powerful chords and very strong lyrics. Did they re-invent the style? i say absolutely not, but they are reviewing it with fantastic songs which are all creating strong feelings to the listener, even if some parts could be a bit commercial (think parrallel of fates warning).

The fullness of time (divided in 4 parts) is 21 minutes long and it feels like a 8-9 minutes, I have listened to this song over 40 times and i just want more...all the effects, the fast tempos, the perfect place of piano and classical guitar touches here and there, a technical drumer, add to the great Alder and you have a perfect album!!!!

Without any hesitation, MY BIGGEST SURPRISE OF 2005, and 3rd on my top three of 2005 ( 1st: the mars volta- frances the mute, 2nd, porcupine tree, Deadwings).
