5 stars Ranging from acoustic to heavier part of metal, this album is pleasant addition to everyone's collection, because it cannot offend. Well, I fear that not every one of you will like this as I do, but that's part of the business. Important thing is to minimize the losses of those, who will not like it.

This is a story about Kung fu. By strange coincidence, I was training certain variant, one style called Hung Gar for years, so my relationship to everything related to this "thing" is great. Even to these cheesy 70's movies. Yes, even to these, you've heard correctly (and again yes, I use "hear" in online conversation through written words too ... which in turn takes me to point where I state that I use written as "typed" too. Whev).

Melodic to the bone, but not being full of clichés and pathetic, this music provides unique Prog Metal experience, because within length of one song, it sometimes (d)evolves to Rock realms, or even switching sides like WW2 spy when it's necessary. Mischief and Epiphany would be perfect example of this unusual behavior. And because of this "variety in style", diversity in music experience they're offering and eclectic elements on this album, I have no choice but to give this the best rating,

5(-), with minor flaws like some sounds I don't like, some metal parts are too similar, nothing big.
