4 stars This album is not so generally appreciated, not even by those who think (like I do) that Callisto's second album Noir is a masterpiece. Almost gone are the brilliant proggy crescendos and overall heavy tensions that colourize the palette of the earlier albums (at least they're in a different form here). Instead Callisto draws a lot of influences from art rock and even a bit from country, while adding some beautiful, atmospheric keyboards. Sure, this is not an album for a total metalhead to bang his head all the time with, but why would it have to be? I like the overall mellow and relaxed atmosphere of the album, and the focused-sounding clean vocals. The tracks are more bass than guitar oriented, which also is a nice move in my opinion as their bass player is pretty skilled one. There are some very nice bass patterns like the one on the nicely grooving beginner In Session. So, less prog than their earlier albums, but a very enjoyable release.
