4 stars This double album, being no doubt the best in the musical career of the band (up to now), leaves, however, rather mixed feeling. Disc One is simply brilliant. Short intro a la BEACH BOYS followed by fantastic Methuselah's Children that resembles the early years of YES, followed by mellow In The Countryside, followed by romantic Moonwalk (my personal favorite), give an impression of a never ending holiday. Music is bright and optimistic unlike the most Scandinavian bands do. Solid performance, strong vocal harmonies, excellent production quality make this release one of the best sympho-prog albums of the year. Disc Two opens with the sense that you've heard all that stuff already. Nothing new, just the cover version of the Disc 1. Even epic Other Half Of The Sky fails to smooth this feeling - a bit boring. Overall, 5 stars for Disc1 + 3 stars for Disc 2 = 4 stars total!
