4 stars Instrumental musical art

With some vocal units, and parts of rock here and there. Of course, excel and dominate Magnus keyboards and synthesizers. Very well accompanied by the Hackett brothers, and Geoff Whitehorn on guitar.

My disappointment lies in the sampled drums and bass, and ghostly vocals towards the end. Marduk is one of two songs with lyrics, sung mostly by Anthony Patterson. Brother Sun Sister Moon is another song with lyrics and is a bit more noticeable, for me.

Worth mentioning that in many parts of the album the drums achieve a good accompaniment, as in the first two issues, and Seven Hands of Time.

Sophia's Song is a delight that contains good licks with flute and well sung by Clare Brigstocke and enjoyable parts of viola and violin too. Beautiful!

Something similar happens with Double Helix, although instrumental, and less extensive. With nice flute on a keyboard and acoustic guitar.

Seven Hands of Time has the unmistakable involvement of Steve Hackett, as well as the final three minutes to close in good form The Power of Reason, and also the work.

It's an album somewhat varied, but undoubtedly very tasteful.
