4 stars Blank Manuskript is back just one year after their latest release Krásná Hora with Himmelfahrt and it's an album that consists of two 20 minute parts. First one is a really confusing, but interesting eclectic journey. It is a dark piece with a very nice trombone and later on guitar parts. After it continues with an interesting part that greatly reminds me of King Crimson. Last 10 minutes are the best fragment of this song and they are more melodically oriented. Side B is 21:28 minute prog epic, the highlight of the album and it's a fantastic piece of music. Great riffing at the beginning and a fantastic instrumental play-along, from the entire band. Then comes in the calming piano part and guitar solo only to descend into the abyss. The last part has been announced by Hammond and the songs builds up in more positive path. This is a really cool album and highly recommended for the fans of eclectic prog.
