4 stars Nad Sylvan has reunited again an impressive list of musicians for this new release. After the short intro, "The Quartermaster" bring some cool keyboards parts in a happy kind of mood. "When The Music Dies" is a song of a different mood with some gorgeous vocals and chants, it's rather melancholic. The rest of the album goes from that semi-ballad and melancholic passages to some more upbeat parts with more place left to the guitar, in "White Crown" and "What we have you done" for example. In the song "Crime of Passion," the melody is spot on with catchy groove and sumptuous orchestration in the Steve Hackett style. "A French Kiss In an Italian Cafe" is a smooth romantic song, probably the weakest track of the album. "The Bride Said No" is the most unpredictable track starting in a soul and funky style before a break in the middle where things get heavier with the keys, bass, and some busy guitar playing. After the previous album, the songs here seems to be working a bit more for me. I think that the Genesis influence is less obvious with some diversity throughout the album and a nice balance between the modern style and past influence.
