4 stars Considered by many to be the DT's masterpiece. I can't decide really if I agree, as DT has several strong even albums. This one is a step forward from the debut album and surpasses it also in terms of ambitions.

The first ambient track puts you into an another world before human emotions on both side of spectrum kick in in the second track. Rough sound and ambiance/new age are in balance here.

"Earth Day" is one of the most favoured DT's tracks: strong melody, excellent vocals, extreme metal as well as pop feeling shape the lengthy song. And yes, we finally have an instrumental track with a guitar solo that reminds progressive metal - listen to "Deep peace". It could have stayed without vocals but the typical DT's sound brings it back to Earth. "Canada" is another fine and slow-paced track devoted to the homeland . "Down and under" serves more as a background track with constant wall of sounds, even the vocals harmonies are restrained not to interrupt the flow. "Nobody's here" could be considered album's ballad with very light parts. "Tiny tears" is another attempt at epic track and it works well but does not reach the qualities of "Earth day". The bonus tracks are not very interesting.

Strongly recommended album!
