4 stars This is the kind of band and the kind of record that make you love again prog-metal. A simple yet incredible well-crafted album with nothing but groove, songwriting and naiveness. The opening track, an old feature in this site for quite a while is a good taster and a solid entrance into these paths, however, the record gets better with each track, FULL MOON and IN MY OWN DREAM are very somber and powerful, like an excersise of patience and musicallity, closed by two sort of ballads, or tender moments, that prevents you to get bored and welcomes the nice instrumental piece KOSMONAUTEN ER DOD. After these, the record becomes a little bit more technical and groovy, closing with the long suite RIPPLES IN TIME, a nice approach to late 70's early 80's prog compositions. In the end, the influences are perfectlly recognizable, however they don't try to leave from those benchmarks, but to expand and learn from them, eventually showing a sense of hidden maturity. It's funny, but if you listen carefully, those influences turned out to be less prog and more metal, i any case, this is a very good example of how to create a nice record with a lot of guts. worth the listen.
