From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Very long songs, a similar style to Genesis (incredible!!...Cyrus has the same voice of Peter Gabriel!!!) and some flute parts that remind me to Jethro Tull. The music is characterized by alternates guitar and keyboard phrasings, very near to a symphonic classic style, maybe too elaborate and baroque in some tracks, but not bad. The oneiric voice of Cyrus gives to this album a dreamlike quality which links perfectly together with the sound of the band and also crazy lyrics collaborate to enphatize this impression. Some parts are near to Van der Graaf style: dark, obscure but with a symphinic final very similar to Marillion's songs. If you are a SYMPHONIC prog fan it's a must, but not essential in the general prog rock world... 2,5 stars for the originality, 4 for the style of the sound, and 4 for the technique.. So 4 STARS for their rarity...
Kord | 4/5 |
