4 stars Hexatonica play some instrumental progressive metal that his moving to different tempo with plenty of atmosphere. The influence of Dream Theater is present, but there is a lot more, because of some nice arrangements, like a xylophone playing in the background, a bass line that create his space for a moment, and also a lot of keyboards and piano that create a symphonic atmosphere, that give the counterpart to the guitar who is the dominant instrument here. At the 4 minutes mark of the first song the band seems to take the book of Dream Theater's Octavarium epic song with the majestic intro.

If the band seems to fall into a cold and technical mood for a moment it doesn't take long before the melody bring some emotions to the sound despite the lack of vocals. This band know how to make some great compositions and beautiful arrangements throughout this cd that doesn't have no weak tracks and will please a lot of progressive rock fans.
