5 stars This is a superb album, arguably the best ever from Jadis. It is as if all the experience of the band in making good albums has crystallised into one brilliant collection of tracks.It is prog, but prog that is song-based and tightly controlled with nothing wasted. Gary Chandler's voice and guitar playing are as good as ever, and there are some wonderful keyboard sounds. There are some slow tracks and some up-tempo tracks, all at about 5-7 minutes. They include exquisitely beautiful moments in 'Make Me Move' and 'All You've Ever Known' and heavier moments in other places. None of the pieces stand out because the standard is so consistently high. I'm a long-time Jadis fan, but the lads have surpassed themselves here. It's a long time since I've listened to an album so often with so much pleasure. Song-based prog at its very best.
