4 stars This record sound definitely like "The Jewel". There are tons of fast cymbals, loud and sophisticated bass (its sound is really unique and definitely not bland). The electric guitars are really good, and the keyboards are impressive too: many moog solos, floating keyboards streams (e.g. organ) and more modern sounds. The guitar rythmic is loud, aggressive and addictive. The four songs are very good, especially "Excalibur", which IMO started the neo progressive style: just listen to those guitar solos, full of pedal effects a la Steve HACKETT. The composition of "Excalibur" is very structured, elaborated and varied. The lead vocals are excellent, as always. The songs have something very addictive and catchy. It can sound like MARILLION-FISH era. Again, the sound is recorded too loud, so that the cymbals sound saturated. This record doesn't leave me indifferent. The style is very urban and tracks may be played in the car on a hot summer night.
