4 stars I discovered the duo Niclas Flinck and Carl Westholm with the album "Superhero" and I enjoyed it enough to continue following the band's music. The duo is playing with others musicians (No Future Orchestra). The music still has a Neo-Prog influence but there is more than that. And I think their sound have matured here with some emotional atmosphere and brilliant arrangments. The distinctive voice of Niclas is very intense and emotional as the music that contains a lot of symphonic tones. "Fleeting Deep" is a strong opener with his edgy prog with those nice keyboards lines. The band has the knack to create some strong melodies, the second track "Between Extremes" is another her good example and display some heavier guitar parts. "The River" stars innocently with some ambient atmosphere but after a break, the song succeeds to build an emotional crescendo. If you enjoyed beautiful songs filled with a little melancholic feel and music that is very melodic, you will enjoy this one.
