5 stars This is a wonderful album blending PHIDEAUX's varied folk, prog and psychadelic influences into a consistently stellar set of well-crafted songs. Apparently much of this music was originally written when PHIDEAUX and drummer Rich Hutchins were in the band Satyricon in the mid 1990s, and properly recorded for this album which was released in 20004.

Much like a great Tull or early Genesis album (and you'll hear influences from those bands here), multiple listens reveal more subtle details and the high crasftsmanship of the songs. The music is sincere and sophisticated, exploring many moods and varied musical styles, featuring strong melodies, fine arrangements and excellent production.

Starting out with two more straight ahead rockers in Everynight (a raw psychadelic/punk rock feel with heavy fuzz guitar) and Feel the Radition (particularly fun and catchy) the album then settles into a more folk-prog vibe, alternating between serene, beautiful moments and more aggressive passages. Through the course of the album one creative moment after another unfolds, and it's an immensely satisfying musical experience. Highly recommended!
