Prog Reviewer
4 stars This band is not very well known as I can deduce from the number of ratings. Second thing about them is that they are obviously considered a good band but nothing more. I can agree to that more or less, but I think I'm slightly more positiv about them. It's regarded as a strange band where their style is concerned. To me this is symphonic prog with a touch of psychedelic/space and indeed it's at least peculiar what they are doing but I don't think this is too weird to like. I think it's original and the compositions are very interesting especially the two longer tracks of course that are real epics.

About the 5 shorter tracks: I like Topspin and Possible worlds best, they are fairly accessable. The other three aren't really the jewels of this album. But altogether this is in fact a 3.5 case to me. Very hard to decide between 3 and 4 stars because this is in fact a unique band with a very nice sound but it's less than most of my 4 star ratings. But becuase I can't agree with the term non-essential becuase of their originality I will have to give 4.
