4 stars In this album, all the pop influences are gone. Again a lot of guest musicians have been used to carve magnificent songs, mixing rock and ambient music in a very smooth way. The songs are much longer, and the prog lovers will have matter to be satisfied.

The album starts with a trilogy of songs: "The Rainbow", "Eden" and "Desire". These three songs are built in a similar way - very long songs (7-8 minutes) with a quiet fade-in intro, heavier rock music when the vocals kick in and quiet interludes/outro with minimalist instruments. Starting with "Inheritance", the last three songs are much softer, but if "I Believe In You" is a gorgeous song (very deep lyrics/vocals on this song), the other two are repetitive and a bit boring.

Rating: 82/100 (excellent)
