4 stars This is not an easy album to listen to. The music moves from time signature to time signature, sometimes heavy sometimes light, not always melodic. It is often harsh and uncompromising, yet t others almost ethereal. Add to it the operatic style female vocals and the result is an album that is full of challenging music.

If anyone ever felt that extreme rock was played by people who only knew how to turn up the volume and play at break neck speed then they should listen to this. It is very much a progressive album; only Genesis never sounded anything like this? It is music that transcends boundaries and consequently will only ever appeal to a select few. I enjoyed it but there had to be a break between playing, as it demands so much from the listener. A concert of theirs must be a very draining experience.

If you think you're brave enough?
