4 stars ARENA's latest album is a concept album that clocks in at 60+ minutes. ARENA's neo-prog has reminiscences to GENESIS, IQ, PINK FLOYD and YES, but most of all to FISH-era MARILLION. The keyboard player Clive Nolan (PENDRAGON, SHADOWLAND etc.) is the one who has most influence on the bands sound. Clive is one of the best keyboard players inside the progressive world today.

- The highlights on this album are the masterpiece "The Hanging Tree" with wonderful harmony vocals, beautiful acoustic guitar and many mood and tempo changes, "Enemy Without" with a catchy chorus and the closing "The Visitor".

- Once again the artwork is outstanding, and so are the musicianship. This is the best ARENA album I've heard so far. Highly recommended!
