4 stars This wonderful 1994 album from Switzerland--my copy happens to be the 2014 remastered version--is very typical neo-prog. Other reviewers have made comparisons to Fish-era Marillion, and in fact the music sounds very much the same. Add Fish--both his vocals and his lyrics--and to my ears it would sound exactly like early Marillion.

The vocals themselves are pretty standard neo-prog. They're very good, but not amazing. The lyrics are fine, but also not anywhere near Fish-level. Those two things are the only things keeping this from being a 5-star album. In keeping with the prog tradition, five songs are over 7 minutes long. The music is driven, atmospheric, and well-written. The remastered version has a live 1998 version of "The Missing Spark," a track from their first album.

Highly recommended for neo-prog fans. 4 stars.
