4 stars The opening track of this album is both interesting as well as intriguing. It has the charms and sonic character of Pink Floyd and The Alan Parson's Project. The lack of vocals on this first track of 'The Dark Third', Aeropause, really an effective bait for us to wanting more of the music of Pure Reason Revolution. And indeed we are in for an astral ride throughout of the album (no wonder some classify this group as 'astral prog' .. Whatever that means).

Call whatever you like, but PRR serves progressive rock that would intoxicated you. Right doses of Pink Floyd, (vocal harmony of) The Alan Parson's Project or The Beach Boys, (complex composition of) Yes, (modern spacey twist of) Porcupine Tree or even at times hard-edged rock n' roll, this is imaginative, daring yet beautiful. It is safe, however, to say that this group has defined its own unique sound. Apprentice of the Universe, Nimos and Tambos and The Bright Ambassadors of Morning (the title owes to Pingk Floyd's Echoes) are the highlights of the album, but it will not be over exaggerating to say that this is something that you will want to listen to as a whole.
