4 stars Fabulous album, and probably the best TD produced in their long carreer. Fabulous spacy keyboard and synthesiser arrangements. The themes vary from spacy ambient to more upfront melodics. The drums are hardly used, only when needed for extra dynamics they come around.

The first song takes us away on a magical journey, and I can't get enough of it, beautyfull. The first four minute start really slow and ambient, and than the guitar enters with some keyboard melodics and rock drums behind it. Enough happens to keep your attention, just sheer fabulous, listen yourself.

Side two starts with the great Cloudburst Flight, after a slow acoustic guitar ambient synth intro an amazing synthesiser solo takes over, a great flight indeed. the last track continous in the same vein as Cloudburst, but a bit deeper in tone, and it is maybe stretched out a bit too long, and a bit more frantic overall, but a nice track.

Concluding I can say that despite the last track is overstaying it's welcome a little bit, this is a great album, and certainly worth your while if you enjoy synthesiser music, and spacy ambient stuff, with some harder edges. Recommended surely

Peace Out
