2 stars First off this kind music cannot be categorized as a neo progressive sub genre as the style is like a metal music ...or you may call it as nu metal or space metal with bands like Within Temptation or Evanescence. At fisrt listen I thought it's gonna be something like Nightwis especially the operatic nature of Jessica - the female vocal. The fundamental trouble with this album is the use of "everything electric and programmed" that makes my ears torn apart as the sound is really awful let alone the music. Maybe the music is quite good in composition but as everything is electric then it really troubles me at the end. I dunno ,....maybe I am an oldtimer prog rock fan so it''s hard for me to listen to 'plastic' sound like this even though the songs are not bad at all actually. Only the instrumentation that makes everything looks and sounds terrible to my ears. If this album is rerecorded with full manual band using real guitar, real keyboard, real drums and real bass guitar like Rickenbaker ...maybe I would rate differently. In fact I cannot afford to continue this album exceeding track 4 because my ears cannot afford to absord a very ugly drum sounds that are completely programmed. It's not good at all, my friends ...

I tend to give a one star rating but then I do not want to penalize the musicians with only one star despite they have worked hard to write a good composition. This album has one fundamental flaw and it's very critical to me: everything is programmed. Not good at all. Keep on proggin' ...!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
