5 stars Quite simply I love this album. Why the world is not screaming about it is beyond me.

I went to Germany and saw them in Unna doing the whole album, start to finish to an audience of about 100. Brilliant as I could stand where I liked and got to chat to the band afterwards too. However, I couldn't help but feel sorry for them. If this was released in the 1970's or even 80's, it would have been huge. The show reminded me in presentation of early Genesis. Little budget so impact by lots of costumes, projectors and minimal lighting. Very good and hugely enjoyable. i hope they get to come to the UK.

Its a concept album, but with no weaknessess at all. Its accessable yet also grows on you the more you listen. I think its beauty lies in its variety, but each track is very very good, some better. Unchain the Earth is just brilliant and should be played on the radio as it would definately catch on in a slightly stripped down radio edit. Yet there is lots of hard core Prog too, The Fisherman is a classic. Lots of Floyd influence but others too including Porcupine Tree, Hogarth Marillion, and even Genesis. I don't think its a concious thing, it just comes out in certain situations I guess.

Buy it, you won't regret it.
