Prog Reviewer
3 stars This album was recorded when neo-prog was in its infancy and it was quite remarkable for a band coming out of Denmark to perform such music.

And neo-prog almost sits at every corner of this album. But the whole is nicely presented, well played and holds some fine and symphonic passages as well (although not too many IMHHO).

The music played by "Zaragon" is highly accessible and melodic but there are not really one giant song which made the whole shining. Even a song as "Thoughts" holds all the classic elements of the neo-prog style.

It is true to say that there are some fine guitar work in here, but I wouldn't compare it with Latimer. He was so much more passionate than Finn Janssen even if, I repeat, some fine guitar IS featured.

In all this is a good album that will mostly enjoy neo-prog fans. Three stars to encourage these guys who were rather isolated in their home country. An easy listening music but enjoyable.
