5 stars Now here ia a Monster Synphonic Prog Masterpiece!!!!..haaa, that will sit perfect aside other monsters from the 70' on your collection; this is not an understatement. Influences are several, the prime suspects are: Genesis, Gentle Giant, Yes and King Crimson, but far away of being imitators, this 6 piece band kept their Sweden Melancholic Rock nature and that to me is one of the most important aspects to call this a Masterpiece!! They probably sparked the reborn of Progressive movement in Sweden, and also may have created the same spark around the globe (I might be wrong), but the truth is that based on the date of this album issue (1994) that may have been the case. I totally missed them at that time, while I was thinking that the prog movement was DEAD or at least mute (How wrong I was!!!), then I came across Buried Alive around the turn of the Century, and I was impressed; but, until I was able to get the re-issue (on a killer digipack) then their true work manifested on me. Beautiful Mellotron, Genesis-like arpeggios and use of flute, killer guitar and a fantastic drum in contrast with that melancholic Scandinavian taste make this piece of work a definitive MUST for any progressive rock fan, rather essential work of certainly one of the best band of the nineties. Indeed, for many the lack of vocals maybe a minus to call it Masterpiece, but personally I do not missed the lyrics, since there is so much taken place musically in the album. I will recommend Anglagard any day of the year, Highly recommended/5 stars.
