3 stars Eternity? More like the end of the human race...

Powerful and violently aggressive - in a musical sense. I don't mean to mix music with politics, but my first impression was that these cats could deal with the Taliban (add a few thousand civilians in "collateral damage:) singlehandedly. Or send them to the mines and the coals would emerge with hands high up in the air. Who needs NATO, or miners when Syzygy are around?

No, this music is not crap at all, rather the opposite, frightfully skilled and precise delivery. But it scares me, honestly. Like with a marksman sniper, one stands zero chance.

The musicianship is First Class, but as I indicated before, the end result scares me. I certainly wouldn't like my daughter dating any of these dudes. That robust energy is just way over the top for me, primarily because it's so powerful - and I grew up on Black Sabbath!

Not sure if I am going to keep this album. At times some tunes remind me even of Gentle Giant, but in place of delicate subtlety, I hear raw power. I could easily get sucked into liking this album, but I'd have concerns about it's effect on my mental state, I kid you not! A veteran of over 40 years of Prog appreciation, I don't sit comfortably with the energy this album brings to my home. Way too aggressive, inviting violent tendencies.

In all fairness, I'll rate them as a 3 for their combined skills and abilities, but they just don't fit comfortably with preferable artistic expressions.

Crossover is an appropriate genre for the band as they showcase many different styles. Comfortable with many, faithful to none - like "any way the wind blows" Hollywood bimboes with an AK-47 in hand. Seductive, but dangerous.

BORA | 3/5 |
