5 stars One word for this: Beautiful.

It's been some quite some time since I heard something so inspiring. This one, at least for me, was one of those albums that you listen to and feel struck with awe. The first time I played it I ended up listening to it four times in a row. Everything you need to make a superb offering is here: diversity of rhytm, the right atmospheres, great guitar work, beautiful melodies, rich textures, outstanding vocals. The feel is mostly a dark one, but done subtly and filled with beauty.

I heard about Devon Graves from Ayreon's last project (The Human Equation), and from there I sought out other works from him. He did a great job in Ayreon, but really shines through on this one. His vocals are gentle, warm at some times, and powerful and penetrating when it needs to be. Marvelous! The drumming, by Mr. Adel Moustafa, is equally impressive. Tribal grooves, well crafted rhythm sections, and plenty of soul.

Seldom do you find an album on which the songs feel so connected. They're all great songs, that fit each other perfectly. The highlights for me are "A Flight on an Angels Wing", "Don't You Ever Hurt" and "My Dying Wish", the storming "Let the Hammer Fall", and the calm "Some Sane Advice" and "The Long Ride Home".

Progressive Metal? Don't let what you've heard before in the genre fool you. No super virtuostic guitar playing, no double bass drumming, no pompous vocals. The only thing you'll find here is beautiful music.

Highly recommended to everyone. Go and get it.
