4 stars Second A.C.T. album is interesting one as well as their debut was. Not very usual combination of great melodies, excellent vocal (multi layers), very competent arrangements. Combination of pop-rock, heavy metal and art rock. Are they "Queen" of XXI century?

Difficult to say, and they don't have such great thing as Freddy's vocals on board. But ,let say seriously - they are capable to take this niche. I like strings and piano sound, rhythm changing, strong back-up vocals, perfect melodies. Lead vocalist is great even if not so recognizable as Freddy Mercury.

Really nice and different album. Happily, without overloading of metal riffs, they could destroy this great music.

Recommended! Not for heavy metal purists for sure, but for wide range of art-rock lovers and for everyone who missed these interesting eclectic sound combinations from late 70-s.
