3 stars The present album is characterized by a couple of immediate mini-suites and other interesting tracks, with hints of floydian excursions and a space athmosphere in the vein of Eloy as well!! The first track is not always derivative, the analogical keyboards are pretty, even though there are not any bombastic solos... the second one is a bit weak but the music is compact ad the melodic lines convincing;nevertheless the female voice is not always inspiring, sometimes reducing her voice range and excursion too, during her acute passages, but it never minds as it seems a mixture between the style of Pink Floyd ("Meddle"-Era) and the early German space rock albums, with a few harmonic solutions, despite of being enriched with some direct guitar effects (always talking about their floydian excursions)...but of course it depends on my personal tastes, above all considering the style of the female singer, because for instance I prefer the symphonic passages by Annie Haslam much more, within album such as "Novella" or "Scheherazade", than any other style inside such German space rock...anyway this album has become a cult concept in the recent years and you can check it out at least!!
