5 stars The first thing that outstand me is the fantastic and fantasy cover of this album, well drawn, but believe even the music inside is really good and catching! If I should describe their style, it's a new form of neoprog like the last Sylvan, Frost*, or Arena, but here the music hasn't that prog metal feeling or sinister and dark moments, here the music is heavy and power in some moments, but even melodic and emotional in other ones. The singer has a really good timbre, he's able to modulate his voice in different ways, keeping the listener transfixed with his spirited and whispering attack. In some composition, that remind me the polish band Satellite in their much power and shine moments, or Fish in a much modern approach!

Here all the production is top notch, and every instruments makes an excellent works, but what I love much are the base line, often busy in intricate solo at start of the epic composition, or in the central parts, and the lush keyboards that prepare the strong melodies for the voice. These are the main focus of the music,and It really makes for a keyboard lovers delight. There are 4 compositions long over 7 minutes and 1 suite of 26 minutes. The suite is really amazing and it contein nine tracks, with the guitars being cranked, the bass booming and the drums becoming more dynamic. All that is tied to spoken word samples and a more poised approach, yet still the glorious key work never eases, leaving you totally beguiled and convinced by the sumptuous full sound.

Excellent album, fully of shadings and brillant ideas that will makes enthusiastic all progressive rock lovers for several time, highly recomended. 5 stars
