5 stars A Modern Prog Masterpiece!!!

THE AMBER LIGHT can be described as mixture of PORCUPINE TREE and RADIOHEAD with a bit of Post-Rock.It's probably the best Modern Psychedelic Prog band,and it's also a perfect choise for Prog Newbies - The Ambers are melodical,professional and emotional.Still can't get why they are Prog-Related: they're Pure Prog!!!

Songs of the album differ from each other a lot: opening mellow "A New Atlantis" changes to nervous Floydian "Tartaros".Touching acoustic ballad "Devil Song" drifts into "Gangsters",the wildest track of the whole record (imagine a mixture of James Bond's score with KC's Schizoid Man)!!!"The Drowning Man in my Hands" is the most post-rocking track here - melloww and meditative,my favoritest,probably!"Hide Inside" sounds just like lost RADIOHEAD's hit - Yorke must work for ages to create something related!Two closing epics,"Clock Hands Heart" with awwesome psychedelic mid-part,and "New Day" (Italian lyrics!!!) ,show the band's ability to create long but no way boring tracks - they'll never let your attention go!!!

Highly recommended for those who don't believe in Modern Prog - this record will make you a huge fan of it!!!
