3 stars A very accesible Prog band

"Introduction" (3.75 out of 5.00) The album kicks off with this rock track. A good one, very simple, catchier and accesible.

"Heaven" (4.00 out of 5.00) This is such a beautiful song, after the intro it is almost poignant. The repetitive lyrics did not annoy at all, then it became a bit heavy, another very accesible song. I like it.

"Hell" (2.50 out of 5.00) The first half is instrumental and repetitive, nothing interesting. The Last half it becomes really funny and more adventurous but not a big deal.

"Fugue in 'D' Minor" (1.50 out of 5.00) Classical music it`s not my thing, well played but out of place in this album.

"The Dream" (3.25 out of 5.00) After the promising intro all turns classical again (Yuck!)... I was expecting something heavy but... Wait... Then it turns beautiful again, just like "Heaven". This song is very eclectic ranging from: Hard rock, Classical, jazz, prog, etc... It is just a lot of improvisation mixed. There are good moments, memorable.

3 Stars well received and recommended
