5 stars My favorite 2021 album!!! At the beginning it reminded me of Wobbler (then I found many reviews have already said that). But repeated listening gave me another view of it. OK, the beginning of the first track: "Emperor" sounds like parts of "From Silence to Somewhere" (my favorite Wobbler album), but after a few minutes the music takes other paths. I don't like very much solo projects, but this one is different, it doesn't even seem to be one of them. (In fact there are three other musicians playing bass, keyboards and drums all along the album and I can feel each musician's different sensibilities). My favorite song is "Lighter Than Air", a long epic (19:34). The truth is that it is a "suite", in the style of the early 70's prog classics. The lightest song on the album is "Magnified as Giants" (the only one under 5 minutes long), an acoustic track that has no drums, allows us to enjoy Ole Michael's mastery. The other two tracks are great epics. I feel how this album grows on me with every listen. A great album!!!
