2 stars Landmark's third album is quite average. It is their last recording to feature the great Damian Wilson on vocals. But even him is rather "short" on this album. The first couple of songs are just a bunch of a parody IMO.

Nothing to be remembered actually. I was quite positive about their debut, but I have to say that the quality of their works seriously dropped after this. There are hardly one great song featured on this album. It sounds as a very average neo-prog and common stuff. "Game Over" is the most illustrious phenomenon out here even if there is some fine guitar during the last minute. The first time so far?

I really wonder if "All Performers Stand Alone" is some kind of a joke or if the band truly meant to release such a cr*p. What a pity!!! Fortunately, there is hope with the short epic "Narovlya". Thanks to a brilliant vocal part from the excellent Damian, this track stands out by a mile here. Even if the closing part is a "Watcher Of Skies" rip off. It is a pity that this great singer left the band after this album.

There are a lot of average tracks featured on this album to consider it as a good effort. The inspiration seems all gone, the great leading vocals are rather dimmed and great guitar moments are too scarce to be described.

In all, this album is quite a deception as far as I'm concerned. Very few positive elements to catch form here. Two stars.
