5 stars The return of this band now with two changes in truth I leave myself hit and I create made a very great jump as far as the sound that is perceived, in notes of this disc we can read that Andy the leader and creator of the project speaks of the importance and relevance that it has had for the abysmal conceptual work creation and I believe that it deals with very consistent way and it obtains a disc that would have of being imitated as far as its conception and development, in this occasion I must agree with some stories that I read of Martín HERNÀNDEZ of Manticornio as far as which it says that this is the stage of creation of an identity own, thing that is absolutely certain, the sound of this disc is brilliant is powerful and it does not request anything to him to anybody, conceived like a tribute very guessed right to "Such From Topographic Oceans", so that I say that it is a tribute guessed right to the YES creation, so that he is that exactly always has annoyed to me that bands remove to cover of already well-known bands so that with only made do it they take off the merito to do they themselves, that class of things are those that I admire more than no other thing of this style of music the effort of its members to make works that in truth are a tribute, for my a tribute is to do something that that band or song specifies has in us of transcendental way thing which I create was obtained from very well made way, as much is so the exit of Ronie STOLT and Zoltan CRÔRSZ is as soon as perceived, thing that I am caused much joy so that that indicates to us that it is a band that accepts the participation of its members and I must say that the participation which I more felt brilliant to clear part this of Mr. Andy TILLISON, was of Theo TRAVIS, with this I do not mean that the others are not good, but until certain point TRAVIS, REINGOLD MANNING and lady BAINE that it very adorns or in short whiles with his sweet voice the disc, do what they came doing of very professional way and more good connected, the work done by the TRAVIS hand, TILLISON and MANNING is simply brilliant, the participation of dupla REINGOLD- SALAZAR that returns me at the great moments of the creations of "Space Revolver" and "Rainmaker" in where this brilliant combination made an excellent work and for many people unique after the exit of SALAZAR of THE FLOWER KINGS, repeats that fantastic union between these musicians who know themselves very or since SALAZAR was the first drummer in the work of called bear KARMAKANIC of where it leaves another member to replace to Mr. STOLT his name Krister JONSSON, that of somewhat contemptuous way is compared to him with STOLT being this very good musician and that it makes his work of form very either obtained and for my surprise or connected enough, this is perhaps so that or it has worked with REINGOLD and I believe that to work with TILLISON it was not problem. The subjects of the disc beautifully are adorned with many secuenciados and calibrated instruments but or like a clock of high precision, to such degree that in truth and not so that me paresaza that left exceeding the presence which they have left but in truth I do not believe that they need to them with this alignment so or obtained, the points obvious and or are delimited with líricas to which they have to us customary in the progressive rock, mystical, revealing and chaotic, where the line to follow is the human being like one more a piece within the game of the life, as the identity search becomes a épica paradigmática the eternal one to look for, to doubt and to find of the man, the influences to which make note TRAVIS are different like those from the past: THE BEATLES, KINGS CRIMSON, YES, PINK FLOYD, GENTLE GIANT. ELP, GENESIS, VDGG and JETHRO TULL, and those of the present: SPOCK'S BREADS, THE FLOWER KINGS, AREA and IQ, the first report of the official site of the band that law spoke of which it was the work that it tried to on a par put of "Unfold The Future" and "Such From Topographic Oceans", I do not know completely what they wanted to give to understand with that references, but when I heard it they made that words obvious and the same me it was made very strange that the disc brought a recommendation of which this disc is due to listen as if outside a work double thing that for 20 years would not doubt it but at the present time makes so coarse and extensive music that that became ridiculous situation, when those discs to which reference becomes left I appear to them like double works so that they were it double and this it is not it, but what if is doubtless a masterful piece of the present time with the subject that gives name to the disc they adjudge one of the huger épicas rolas of all the times, a work that would not have to lack in the any collection of progressive rock, concept and brilliant interpretation.
