4 stars However, in general, second real deal (mean full length) Khatsaturjan's album is little bit worse than previous masterpiece. However to their courage should speak that they dares to explore new horizons.

On these 60 minutes, they have enough space to do so. There is small, few seconds long jazz interlude. There are Eclectic parts (referring to how Ecl. Prog groups sounds like).

There will be again long compositions (two even 16 & 18 minutes long, so it's quite impressive) and you can expect many changes of moods + long guitar solos.

But most of all, this good old melody element is here still (I call it Symphonic, because it reminds me Vintage groups from 70's, but as I was told, it actually isn't Symphonic Prog at all, only some elements).

This album is almost classical music experience, but for better understanding of this, please read previous review. These Swedish guys were being inspired again and it works, it works quite well and brings fruits of their labour. I can't even spell their names, but they're making music that takes breath on its own.

4(+), I'm not the only one here who loses breath, this album is becoming slightly worse towards the end, but nothing extremely bad, first let's say half is perfect.
