4 stars Fellow PA member Infocat, Thank You!

I am a newbie and have been reviewing my favorites of the past mostly. So I thought I would come up to speed (sort of) and review this album which was recommended to me by Infocat in his response to my newbie introduction in the Forum. I have been listening to it for the past week and it is delightful, even though the concept of the album may not be so. It first sounded in a spiritual nature, but after further listens and reading reviews, it is about a mental patient but is uplifting

The first track, The Passing Bell, is the epic which starts out with sort of a Eloy sounding guitar (with much better vocals), but eventually gets to a Floydian sound in nature and ends in a majestic marching feel. Excellent.

The rest of the album is very good with various moods brought out in melodies that can stick in your head (in a good way). You can hear elements of Floyd, early Genesis, a little Beatles, as well as their own sound. It is filled with nice, deep moog sounds and ends in another majestic, beauitful tune (All That Is) that is full of driving moods and good vocal harmonies.

Having only listened to it a week, I give it 4.5 stars but will hold off to a 4 while I listen to it more.

PS-I would not have learned about this band if I had not joined PA and this been recommended. So join up if you are on the outside looking in.
