3 stars A pleasant surprise. I'm not, shall we say, particularly enamoured of Roine Stolt's last decade or so of work, so I didn't expect much. A Yes copy, I thought. But this album does have its own character. I can't find any touchstones that are too obvious- sure, there may be a little Yessishness, or Genesishness here or there, but not enough to be imitation. The compostions are sweeping, epic in mood and grand. Very melodic, too. The Swedish vocals are excellent, and the singer has a classy, expressive voice. The are lots of different kinds of keys used, mostly of the textural variety, which is fine by me- I hate long Hammond solos. This is very good second-tier sympho, and has a nifty cover painting to boot. A safe buy for symphonic aficionados.
