3 stars I thought that this group was dead after a sole album that had left me no imperishable souvenir but none displeasing either. I was aware of one or two members playing in another band (Valinor's Tree) so I was not expecting to see anything more from them especially 8 years after.

On with the music, and oine can say that they stayed true to their sound , even though they changed guitarist and drummers , but now many more bands have filled the gap left empty after such a long absence (meaning that back in 95 , they were the only one to sound like themselves which is not the case anymore). I might say that Valinor's Tree's second album and Twin Age's third actually sound much alike. I have less feelings for this second album (another concept album - like their debut) due to the fact of the extreme amount such prog music on offer in this present era, that this quickly slid from my deck onto the outgoing pile of disc to trade. It will probably be joined soon by their debut. I have rounded up to three stars - not that it deserves less or more but I find this relatively pointless with a rather tedious concept.
