3 stars Musicianship? Yes. Songwriting? Yes. Originality? Absolutely Not. This album suffers from the same old, it fits the the cookie cutter, progressive / power metal design to a tee and yet, despite all this the music is quite good. I am well and truly conflicted on this album, ranging from 2-4 stars depending on my mood, it certainly doesn't have the originality, memorable music or timeless nature to be rated 5 stars and it is without a doubt too well written to be given 1 star.

I have issues with the vocals, they're good but everyone who has heard this style of metal has heard them before, musically the band is talented but the music is as bland and lifeless as any other band who copies the DT style of prog metal. In truth the music here kind of falls to the background, I have listened to this album countless times and every time I find it difficult to bring to mind any music after the fact, let alone feel any strong desire to re-listen to the music. Don't get me wrong I enjoy the music while it plays but after the fact I have this anticlimactic 'well that happened' attitude towards the music.

There is great potential, the band is talented not only as musicians but as songwriters but without an identifiable sound or any creativity I don't feel as though the band can warrant anything beyond 3 stars.
