5 stars Hey! You got art in my metal! Hey! You got metal in my art!

Between the art and the metal lies jazz, and a nice Indian flavoring.

Really one of the top albums of 2007, hear me now and believe me later. It's been quite unappreciated so far, maybe time will tell, it came out late in the year. As I write this I'm thinking it may just take a little more time. The only musician I am familiar with on here is Jonas Hellborg. If you think you know all the great bassists in progdom and don't know Hellborg, then you have a missing piece my friend.

This band just makes some really intense and dense instrumental music. Sometimes it's nice to have instrumental music that is just simple but not too complex. Sometimes you have to have something intense, and here you are. These songs really take you to interesting places. A taste expanding experience for the metal fan as well as the non-metal progressive music fan. We can all just get along.
