4 stars What a great discovery. Haven't heard about this band until recently and came across "Origins " accidentally. This indeed is huge effort with excellent result both in terms of the concept and the music itself. Supposed to sound like music from 80's, it does - and in the very positive way. Listening to the whole thing in one go is the best way to appreciate it with paying attention to the story - downloading lyrics from artist's website definitely helps. With the playing time nicely above two hours, this could present bit of a challenge but definitely worth it. And it gets better with every listen. I understand that narration might be polarizing, it's indeed quite a lot of storytelling and dialog but for me it's part of an experience.. cinematic, as advertised. Lot's of outstanding tunes, so won't go through all of them. Highlights are "2048 Numbers", "Violet Alone" and absolute masterpiece - closing epic "Infinite Within" which has made it to my personal Best of Prog playlist. Looking forward to next release... It's 4.5 stars rounded to 4
