3 stars A very well put together album, Pelican expands its sound and their overall focus. This album is probably their most refined orchestra of riffs and textures. That being said, to me, the tunes are not as powerful or moving as the ones found on Australasia. Pelican is a very well put together machine. The four feed well off one another, using each other to achieve a kind of band synergy that you dont often see, able to create more as a group than they probably should.

Let's just make this analogy. Pelican as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts, whereas a band like Dream Theater has the sum of its parts greater than its whole. Hopefully that makes sense for you. The album here is quite interesting, but personally, I've never found it as powerful.

A good album for those looking to branch off into sub categories of progressive metal.
