3 stars The mellotron isn't as upfront as on their debut, and there's even one song ("1580") without it. They have a guest bass player on this one as well.

"Wizzard" is perhaps my favourite track on this album. This is an uptempo song with some excellent drumming, guitar and mellotron. "Autumn Sun In Cold Water" is a good song with prominant drumming. "Artificial Energy" is a pastoral song with lots of atmosphere and some good guitar sounds. "Driftin'" reminds me of IONA at times with lots of mood and tempo changes.

"Troja" is another favourite of mine with some good guitar that comes and goes. Mellotron comes in after 3 minutes and the song has a powerful ending. "1580" opens with piano as drums, moog and piano melodies come and go. "Explorer" opens with electronic sounds, and it's 3 minutes before the song really kicks in with lots of mellotron.

As good as this is it still pales in comparison to their debut "Symphonic Pictures". I still recommend it though as it's very well done. 3.5 stars.
