5 stars Absolutely incredible, without a doubt the album of the year. Five stars.

If you wanna know once and for all what this album sounds like, it's like a mix between Porcupine Tree's Fear Of A Blank Planet and Opeth's Ghost Reveries. It features many soothing and mellow melodies, and heavy sections with death growls. This concept album's story is, summed up terribly, about a man with Alzheimer. This story is covered through seven tracks, with three of them being over the ten-minute mark. Each track is highly dynamic and keeps you entertained every second, the amount of musical ideas they cover in 63 minutes truly is impressive!

Overall, this album is absolutely amazing, in fact I would dare to say this is the best progressive metal album I've heard since Opeth's Ghost Reveries. Essential.
