3 stars Very fine band from Switzerland. Their second album is my first entry into their world (or should I say Jean-Pierre Schenk´s world, since the band is his brainchild). At first I must say it sounded a little too repetitive and kind of boring. The heavy Pink Floyd influence is evident and I thought they may be just another band of copycats gone wrong, or little more than that.

After some repeated listenings I found their overall sound to be actually richer than I first thought and the songs much more captivating also. Ok, nothing is really new here, but it sounds sincere and very well crafted. The old Hammond organ and the guitar solos are specially good: emotional and melodic. The eletronic drums were never of my liking, but actually works for this kind of style, more laid back and soft. It would be great if they put some more bombastic parts to add a little more power to their sound here and there. It would sure bring my rating to four stars, since it is obvious they are talented musicians and do know how to write good melodies.

In the end I found this CD quite pleasant and promising. I´m looking forward to hear their most recent works. A band to watch for. Recommended for fans of Pink Floyd, Pendragon, Like Wendy, etc.
