2 stars 2.5 stars...

My rating is just fake...This is not a bad album at all...Actually it has some really good moments...some nice keyboard solos and acrobatics,some nice guitar riffs and melodies (are DREAM THEATER come to your mind?) ,do not imagine something amazing but this album really stands good...and the vocalist stands good as well with his metal voice,imagine a slightly german accented version of Ray Alder of FATES WARNING...The problem is that everything you hear in this disc is previously about 1000 times played by other bands and listening to this album again and again goes rather a point that I just avoid listening to that kind of bands...Not my cup of tea anymore,but DREAM THEATER freaks who just can't get enough might enjoy this one a lot...

If their next album, for me at least, Beyond the stars is a real gem in prog metal field, this self titled debut is more then decent with good pieces still far from excellent. I like the art work here as on their next album, goes hand in hand with the music offered. 3 solid stars for me maybe 3.5 in places.
