4 stars "Different faces on the other side"

Deservedly, a while ago that Sylvan is recognized within the harsh environment of progressive rock. And so, mainly from the phenomenal Posthumous Silence. However, his first really important is this. Not as recognized as it should be, in my humble opinion.

In fact, the title track is the most daring of the group and their best suite to date. A deliberate attack on the ephemeral human society, their false hopes and egocentricity, great lyrics and excellent music composition, with reflective and other powerful sections.

Registration Glühmann voice is energetic and well used in its different facets. I also note rhythmic and imaginative guitar bass executed by Harnack. Not to mention the Söhl guitar runs, with great solos and riffs successful. Keyboards and drums accompany fine.

Deep Inside, That's Why it Hurts and Timeless Traces also stand above the rest. Although, strictly speaking, the whole album is homogeneous and has almost no waste.
