4 stars BEAUTIFUL!This is the only word that cames in my mind to express my appreciation for a true wonderful album of very inspired prog metal!It's a great prog metal album ,made by very ambitious musicians,and we can say that they are skilled at maximum to compose very high quality music in the prog metal area!Some outstanding compositions which put the spot on the superbe voice of Russel Gray,a marvelous vocalist indeed!A vocalist with a wide range of vocal expressions,from rough and metal rage to enchanting melodic tones!The band is focusing on this debut album on the technical aspect ,but the compositions are very,very elaborated too!Great instrumental passages and surprisingly rhythm changes,diverse compositions and in the end an album of more than one hour,but,honestly we don't realise thet time can pass so quickly when music plays so wonderful!I like the production very much,the sound of the guitars is excellent and the drums are a precise place in the ensemble of the band!Crystaline and rich sound for the keyboards too ,a good production overall! The title song of the album BROKEN GLASS is a monument of near 20 minutes of a pure musical journey into the imagination of the CRISES world!We have here everything-long instrumental passages-many changing tempo passages-wonderful lyrics and a great,impressive technical display of this so heavenly gifted band!It's very heavy,double pedal drums are everywhere,muscled compositions and a very efficient balance between feeling and power rhythms!One of the best albums in prog metal world,strongly influenced by the mythical IMAGES AND WORDS, album,a refference in the genre,but without being a clone not even for a single second! And sometimes,the disciple is better then his master!!! 4.5 STARS for a pure prog metal jewel!
