5 stars This is one of my new favorite bands! When I heard the album the first time, I was a little dissapointed by the opening song. At first I thought it would be too "Pink Floyd". And yes, it does have alot of similar sounds that pink floyd used, but after a minute or so, the song really starts to develop its own unique flavor.

The band is obviously influenced by many older bands, but they put together their songs in a very unique way. The 3 voice harmonies and counterpoint singing is really cool sounding. The vocals on the album are pretty good, and the synthesizers are incredibly well done and well placed for a dreamy feel. The guitars aren't bad and the bass is usually quite catchy. The violin parts really add to the album, as do the

The only song on the album that could have been done better is "Bright Ambassadors Of Morning" Its starts off well, but its a little repetative. It has alot of highpoints to it though, and that makes up for its repetative sequences in the song. I rate the song about a 7/10 while all the others are perfect 10's.

Overall, I would rate this album about a 4.9 because it just falls short of a masterpice because of Bright Ambassadors Of Morning.

I reccomend this to any fan of psychadelic music. Its a must have album for fans of bands like Pink Floyd
