4 stars A perfect Tim Burton movie soundtrack... This guys are dramatic and plays loud man... just great...

First, I'm not giving these 4 stars because their'e russians... I'm a devoted fan from Prog Metal and ussually find that most the bands I like end up being fans of Dream Theater... well... As long as I am a devoted fan from Dream Theater, is nice to find fresh ideas -or at least different- from what we heard day by day.... and this album, and whole their discography is quite impressive...

Now, I understand that some people could not like all the different moods and styles they use... they are too much dramatic and developes many different ambients through the main prog metal riffs... Is an interest task to put attention to... and I'm really pleased I discover this band... Is very strange, almost surreal... but I enjoy it....

Production and perfoming is quite impressive... great... 5 stars without doubt... but you may be left a little confused at the end... because there's too much to listen to... maybe they change too fast the mood and you are not prepared for that... I say you give it a try... is very interesting, and their'e not that heavy if that scares you... their most like a Rock Opera... a lot of classic -properly classic- influences with symphonic passages and strange vibes through the whole piece...

Try it... is fresh, moody, odd and surreal... great... really great...
