5 stars This album is stunning.

There is no other word for it.

For me, it represents the progressive rock of the 21st century.

There is not a weak track on the album and the whole thing just flows more smoothly than a pint of Guinness.

The album is genuinely more 'progressive' than recent offerings and my joy is unbounded at the fact that the electric guitar plays such a prominent role.

'West Winds' is indeed a cracking track, as is the penultimate track 'Deep Blue World'.

However, the final, 27+ minute almost title track is simply mind-blowing.

When I first got the Cd, I played this track continously for about a week, before going back to playing the full Cd.

As Bruce Soord (songwriter) himself says, the best TPT 'builder' so far.

If you liked the earlier TPT of 'Variations' or if you are a fan of Porcupine Tree or early Radiohead, you should love this.

Actually, if you love music that is truly progressive in that it is never contained within any set parameters, buy this.

A massive album from a much under-rated band.

A genuine 5 stars.
