3 stars Actually nowadays this kind of melodic progressive music, which is characterized by a certain sad mood and its "floydian" melancholy as well, is a bit dated and prolix too (so I can give it a 3 stars rating and an half- as top score- but I'm not sure about it...);nevertheless the personal imprinting of A.D., a remarkable German ensemble, is much evident here and more than their following albums always in the vein of bands like Novalis, and with that typical harmonic construction on the main theme, which is a bit tiring at the end..don't get me wrong, the present album is often stunning-especially by maintaining a certain balance- that is a compromise between the personal arrangement of the melodies and their music references recalling a few derivative styles of such "German space rock"; instead their emulation of some "Britannic models" of progressive music,above all inside their next works in the vein of those ones -"symphonic-oriented"- by Pink Floyd, is not so extraordinary to me.However -coming back to the present debut album-there are a lot of memorable moments within and a recognizable style as well, apart from a few common places and a certain prolixity in the development of the concept...ok probably a "three stars score" is the right score, but it depends on your tastes and -as for my opinion above- I don't want to affect your evaluation: make your own choice, regarding of an old music stereotype of classic prog!!
