4 stars This was a surprising discovery, thanks to iTunes' "Listeners Also Bought" suggestion line. Kind of a mix of Porcupine Tree, Sylvan, tinyfish, and King Crimson, all on the heavy side. My favorites, of course, are the songs with more delicate, spacious and melodic parts like the CYNIC and FEN-like "Path of the Dying" (7:20) (9/10); the STEVEN WILSON-cum-KING CRIMSON-ish, "Quietus" (5:30) (8/10), and; the borderline smooth jazz instrumental, "2am" (6:26) (8/10). My favorite song on the album, though, is the polyrhythmic exercise, "Moodroom v.2" (4:36). I love the 'addition' of the trumpet, vocal samples, and cello to the otherwise KC "Discipline" clone. (10/10)

Four stars of, dare I say it, "excellent" heavy prog.(!)
