4 stars This is an interesting album and very difficult for me to review after the great 'One Among The Living' album of 2010. The quality of Mystery remains with perhaps a little more refinement. However, I have listened to this album a number of times now and as much as I enjoy it for the great album it is, I do not believe it matches the strength in melody of 'One Among The Living'.

Of course, one cannot expect every album any group produces to be progressively better than the last one. That very rarely happens across the career of many progressive rock bands due to the very nature of the genre itself.

Still, it IS an excellent album and I cannot reasonably give it less than four stars. Benoit David shines with his great vocals and Michel St Pere's musical ability is in clear evidence. The album ties together nicely, but for me personally, there are no real stand-out tracks or melodies like there were in 'One Among The Living'. However, Mystery are a superb group and St Pere is a genuinely humble and decent fellow who can write a mean tune and I look forward to many more great albums in future years.

Richens | 4/5 |
