2 stars This is just a write off really. Lots of synths and orchestral sounds along with poppy sounding tunes.

"Recognition ?" has that orchestral flavour as sounds come and go. I don't like this one at all. Vocals after 2 1/2 minutes. "A Princess In Egypt" actually is led by male vocals and it's very commercial sounding. No thanks. "The Joyous Untruth" opens with drums before a full sound arrives quickly in this instrumental. "Infinity" opens with piano and synths. Drums join in. It settles right down then processed vocals arrive 2 1/2 minutes in. "A Life-Time Before" puts the focus on the vocals.

"7, 8th Avenue" features vocals and lots of synths. "Smile" is where they slow it down. Not a fan of this one either. "Green Park Station" is kind of funky with vocals. "Dizzy Raptures" sounds better as she actually sings with strings. "Driftin'" is led by synths early then drums join in. Keyboards are good but I don't like the rest.

Barely 2 stars and the worst that i've heard from this Dutch band. Please stick with "Song Of The Marching Children", the rest doesn't come close in my opinion.
