5 stars Ephemeral Sun makes their second studio album a unique but pleasant experience. It's hard to classify this as a genre because while it has the progressive metal sound with the guitars and all, it often goes into a more lighter prog rock tone at some points. The album starts out with Springsong, Prism and Memoirs which as standalone tracks are very well done. The shine of this album is of course Harvest Aorta. Keep in mind except for a few sound effects that are vocals, the whole album is instrumental only

Harvest Aorta is a 42 minute epic that has enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. The main part idea of the track is progressive metal, but in the track it features many solo keyboard/piano parts and about halfway through it even features an almost ambient sound to it which is really nice. I would go as far to say there is also a hint of jazz fusion in some areas of the song. This album is one of the best this year.
