4 stars This is a gem of the neo-progressive rock from the 90s, a very good second album from Arcansiel. This album is like a neoprogressive version of Nuova era, their sound and production is about the same although Arcansiel is firmly rooted in neo-style in the vein of Marillion.

The first song, I'm still searching, is the best and longest song, over 20-minutes and is one of those rare songs that actually keeps you interested for the whole time. Fantastic melodies keeps coming on and on all those 20-minutes. A song that I still enjoy so many years after I bought the album. One of my all time favourites.

Angel of marsh is another good one, not as good as the first but still really great melodic neoprog with emotional vocals.

Your only treasure is not as progressive but full of emotions and melodies, really good one.

Empty pages continues in the more melodic vein and closes the album although this one is probalby the weakest one on the album, good but not great.

Arcansiel's Still searching is a hidden gem of the 90's neo-progressive rock and one that I always enjoy playing. The opening 21-minutes is fantastic.
