3 stars Tempus Fugit second release is quite more varied than the first, Tales Of A Forgotten World. The band has expanded its palatte of sounds, but the basic elements that forged their early music are still here: classic prog of the 70´s like Camel, ELP, Genesis and Yes, plus a strong classical influence. There are, nevertheless, more jazzy stuff and some experimentalism here and there. Certainly they´re still defining their style. Even thought I still like their debut album more, it is obvious that those guys are getting better. Even the vocals, their weakest point, are quite superior here. The instrumental tracks are the best ones, though. Fortunatly they are the majority again.

Highlights are the guitar and keyboards overplays. Wow! Those guys are really good and they know how to use their fantastic technique to produce goood music instead of just showng off. Bassist is also very good, his playing is fluent and melodic. The use of classical guitars on many tracks enhance their sound and reveals a great deal of baroque and flamenco roots. And Tempus Fugit members know how to write SONGs, rather them excuses for long solos and instrumental noodling. That is quite good.

All in all avery good prog album: melodic, beautiful, bombastic. Lots of mini-moog a la Rick Wakeman, hammond organ, passionate guitar solos, and so forth. Music from the heart played by skillful and sensite musicians. A great find. Recommended to any prog lover. 3,5 stars.
