3 stars After their first two albums, very much in the style of King Crimson with some heavy Progressive Rock sound, the band has drift away a bit, by bringing down their sound with more peaceful songs on their last albums. The music contain that melancholic feel with long instrumental break and some vocals that are use more in the background of the music. The CD start with the heavy style of their first album with the song "Shooting Star", you can even hear at the end the Opeth influence. But after this song, the band is back with some more peaceful music that still use a good dose of mellotron, flute played at a slow pace. While i can enjoy the overall sound of this music, the songs didn't grab me very much until the last song "Our Days Are Numbered" that show again the influence of their heavy period with some great guitar/bass interplay and a grooving rhythm section in the second part , that after a slow break end the song in a frenetic fashion. So i only enjoy two songs on the album : the first and the last one, the rest is not poor, but lacking of the dynamism i am looking for in the music.
