This is an excellent album by a very little known and underrated band for everyone loving heavy intricate kind of music. Although being a bit in the vein of 70's veterans like CRIMSON or VDGG, in fact the vocals remind quite a lot to Peter Hammill, the music on here is absolutely innovative and unique. Awesome Vintage type keyboard playing and guitar riffing, complex structures, mood shifts and odd-timed rhythms just as I love it. GARDEN WALL's style is not at all reminiscent of the classic Italian Prog, is much darker and heavier. I can't hear as well not much resemblance with GENESIS, since the style of guitar and keyboard playing is quite different from that one of Hackett/Banks. Anyway this band is IMHO one of the most innovative and technically perfect ones of the 90's. I'd like to recommend this album highly to any fan of dark,heavy and intricate progressive rock.

A very masterly done album and certainly the best one by this band! (4,5 stars in real!)
