3 stars This sophomore release from Canadian outfit Signs of One is interesting in many ways, but also a quite frustrating release to go through.

First and foremost it's a concept album - so die hard fans of those will want to get this one no matter what. Besides the lyrical side, there's not much of a red thread going through this album though. Musically they try out most styles of progressive rock under the sun, adding in elements from mainstream music and metal as well. Most songs change style or pace quicker than you can utter the word impulsive, and quite often at that. Pop, metal and prog in an experimental, eclectic and quite mixed release in many aspects.

As influences go the only one I could pick out were Rush - but as indicated above the dominating musical trait here is that there isn't one - so fans of that trio may not find this band that interesting. But it's an easy influence to catch in this musical quilt.

Fans of experimental progressive rock incorporating a multitude of styles and tempo changes; often in the same song; might find this one interesting. Others are advised to listen to some of their tunes before deciding; as this one won't have a universal appeal.

4 stars A valuable album by this canadian band with a cornucopia of ideas telling the story about a mysterious book which changes the protagonist's mode of thinking. Concertante - something like a rock musical with a seventy minute permanent suite divided in several parts. Bombast with Queen leanings here and Kansas attributes there. Beguiling flute and violin, piano interludes and symphonic keyboards, hard riffing guitars, nice melodies and polyphonic vocals.

Quite complex arrangements are the trademark - rocking, funky, balladesque ... they must have spent a long time to work out this one for sure. Only to remark some of the songs - the impulsive Confusion appears in a neo prog habit followed by the art rock ballad Wise Man and the fluffy The rain comes. A happy flavour dominates Rainbow Elves with some funfair organ whereas Legend Lives surprises with Dream Theater alike moments.

'Innerlands' is a colourful symphonic effort with AOR transitions which is recommendable in any case - 4 stars are well deserved.
