4 stars I followed the discussion about this band in the forum and one of the people who already heard the album said the opening track was the worst of them all. It shows how tastes can vary because the song that struck me most in a positive way was this same song, The Show. I really love it especially the first few and the last few minutes. Second track is with Petronella Nettermalm from Paatos. It's remarkable how her contribution immediately leads to similarity with the music of Paatos. Anyway, another fine track. Better than Anything is my second favourite and another cracking song. I hope this one will be the future general style and sound of the band and they will have another fan. Blocked is a pretty good instrumental track before it's Gildenlow time doing a song with the band making it all sound like his band Pain of Salvation. Looks like Ephrat is a sort of chameleon, they can change any time a guest musician joins them. I think this is the third great song making this already a successful debut. And then the longest (Real) is yet to come, in most cases I like the longest track best of them all but not this time really. Could also be I will have to get used to it more because it's a true epic, both in length as in complexity.

So not a bad debut at all by Ephrat, a very good one even and worthy of 4 stars to me (3,8). Recommended for those who like variety within an album (prog metal, heavy prog, cross over a.o.). Because none of the tracks is like any other of the 5 so that's another interesting thing about this impressive kick-off by Ephrat.
