4 stars After reading Big Kansas Fan review I was curiious enough to buy this disc and find one of the most interestings CDs I heard this year. A very unique sound, though their influences are clear: classic rock, prog and some AOR. The result? You gotta hear to believe it! Very melodic, exciting and quite different. The first tune, As I Am, was not very convincing, though. Not a bad song, but not par to the rest of the CD, which is pure gold. Highlights are: the title track, Snowhite and the 11+ minute epic The Awakening (very emotional with some great guitar solos). As expected in this style, the musicanship, arrangements and songwriting are superb. Benoit David has a fantastic voice and range, he is clearly one of the best new singers around. If you like melodic hard rock with strong prog influences you should not miss this one! A nice surprise!
