5 stars Isolation - Great album - yes it`s different from it`s predecessor - but to me, it`s much much better when each album differs from previous one and not copies it. It is full of energy - solid statement from Antony. It even has a few prog Hits. Yes hits - listen to the "Shall We Run?" or"64" - tunes in this tracks are so significant & expressive . "Shall We Run" for Sunchild is like a "Kayleigh" for Marillion, "You`re Not Alone" for Saga or "Red Barchetta" for Rush. Rock anthem as it is - perfect song for playing live! I don`t mind an accent - then what about Rpwl, TFK, Eloy ?? You may find some reminiscence with Pink Floyd (cover as well) but it`s plus i think. Listen to the Isolation (part 2 & 4) it`s Kalugin at his best. I enjoyed the idea to have childs vocals in parts as well - what an awsome combination of vocals at the outro of Isolation part 4. It impressed me much and i enjoyed this as well later in Silhouette`s "When Snow's Falling Down". So, to me latest Sunchild album is a prog rock height. Highly recommended to whide circle of listeners. Whith "Isolation" Antony has expanded the frames of genre without a doubt.
