3 stars A social album, one speaking of many social concerns from the government to pejudices against indigenous peoples to the morality of continuous radioactive use. In this way, the album is fairly similar to Queensryche's incorporation of concepts within their albums like Empire. However, I will say that despite the impact of the message, they do come across as typical and very biased. It doesn't seem like it was approached in a way that is more educated manner as we would see on later albums.

Anyways, the music itself is good and exciting, but very typical prog metal, which brings the album down a bit. They perform well, but its not fresh. Better than Entropia in that now they are not afraid to talk about what they want to, but still are reserved with typical, but very well done prog metal sounds.
