4 stars I bought this album through amazon.com when i was looking for prog-metal band's that do not sounded like Dream Theater, and this is one of the best records i've ever listened.

Because all of the good reviews, I was expecting some heavy , powerfull music, with lots of crunchy guitars, and double-bass drums and long amazing solos. However, it was a competely different stoy.

This album is all about melody, about really powerfull melodies by the vocals. Everything else is there just to support the vocals, and, eventhough i don't think the singer is incredibly talented, he does sing with lots of guts and hearts.

Musically it's nothing to write home about. They do use some odd tiem signatures and stuff, but the riffs are patterns are simple (except for "Fandango". And about guitar soloing, I simply can't get into the style. The solos are not bad, but they lack the heart that the vocals. And for my personal taste, tracks like "Dryad of the woods" are lame and boring , with baby chords and a happy ballad feeling i strongly dislike.

Overall it is a grood album, though for after the 8 track it falls down, with to many soft songs. My favorite tracks are "Fandango" for the complex riffs, "A Trace of Blood", for its almost Dragon Ball-esque intro, and incredibly strong chorus, and "Undertow", for its dark, clam atmosphere.

Defenitly recommended if you want to explore a different face of prog-metal.
