5 stars This album is AMAZING! I have a hard time wrapping my head around how SC3 manage too cram so many diverse musical genre mish mashes together, and still sound cohesive. And then manage throughout this genre craziness, maintain Indian flavor to all of those genres.

Now, lets see, theres grandoise orchestral pieces, which turn into something that sounds like it came from a wild wild west movie where theres about to be a quickdraw, then theres death metal and grindcore parts, indian tinged surf songs, with orchestral backings, one part where it sounds like it came from the sixth Star Wars movie, during the Endor scenes, parts where your walking through a haunted house or watcing someone get abducted by a UFO, Indian belly dancing music, Black Sabbath style riffing moments, hard rock with electric sitars, and on and on. It's really quite impossible to describe this insane grab bag of musical styles, which are always pulled off with a flair that other genre mashing bands can't seem to pull off.

SC3 really know how to put on a good show, with high quality muscianship, and amazing understanding of musical styles. An album that should be in every Prog fans collection.

Sheavy | 5/5 |
