4 stars It gets better with every listening.

I gave this album a few spins in recent weeks. Obtained on recommendation, it didn't quite grab me at first, but for some reason I was reluctant to put it away, never to bother with just part of the collection. Still, there was something in there that I was intrigued by - deep under the surface. And just as well!

So, devoting some more time I gave it a determining last spin and more attention - for the last time. and the result was somewhat beyond my expectations. These guys can play well and the compositions are rather pleasing, too!

Hardly a masterpiece, but a pleasant diversion between listening to Brand X and Mahavishnu to soothe the excitement. Listed under Eclectic-Prog is probably appropriate as contrary to the Neo-Prog appearance, this is not yet another Gabriel-era Genesis clone - that I can't absorb any longer.

The pleasantly heavy and tasteful guitars and equally commendable keyboards make this album worthy of due notice. The odd, lull moment filled with vocals is also enjoyable. This album had grown on me in recent weeks Whilst it may never be part of my Desert Island Collection, it will have a space on my shelf.

BORA | 4/5 |
