5 stars Well, I certainly didn't see this album coming! I first caught a listen to this album on and was absolutely and completely blown away by its beauty and melodic power. It is undeniably heavily influenced by Genesis of the 1975-78 era with the many keyboard flourishes of Tony Banks emulated brilliantly in the playing of Jason Hart. However, his own individuality also shines through in his playing style. This is an astounding album of rare purity and possibly my most unexpectedly favourite release of 2012. I never knew who Jason Hart was before this album, but hell, this album is absolutely fantastic and I seriously hope Jason continues to make music along this line.

There is a strange juxtaposition in the retro keyboard sound of the 70's and the flowing classical sweeps in tracks such as 'Hide and Seek', which is a truly amazing track, but believe me, it is not at all unpleasant. It is nostalgic, but at the same time uplifting and inspiring. It is very rare that an album of any genre is released that can evoke such emotion in the listener.

This, in my opinion, is the epitome of a masterpiece. From start to finish this album astounds. It lifts you with soaring melodies and drowns you in the beautiful vocal style of Hart. If you are a Genesis fan buy this album. If you are this album! It is astounding, beautiful, inspiring and uplifting and it has been on repeat on my music player for the last three weeks. Nothing compares to it.
