5 stars My first exposure to Abel Ganz. At first, I was quite afraid of this artist's name (not exactly afraid, but I simply overlooked this band and looked for something else), but when I finally tried it (because I was tempted by "what if it is good"), I was pleasantly surprised. Music that fits into my soul, into my point of Prog view perfectly.

Four long compositions, ranging from 13 to 25 minutes provides many twists, complex layering without giving in to weirdness. Nope, pleasant atmosphere surrounding all these tracks remains thorough entire album. Breathtaking guitar solos, calm parts (yep, comparing this to Anthony Phillips is especially true) and most of all, great feeling of something "bigger than us" (you know how they call it), when listening this. Striking in a non-aggressive way, melodic in a non-cheesy way, complex in (guess what), non-stupid way, "Shooting Albratros" isn't just beautiful cover (which helped me to start listening it), it's great album of group old almost 30 years, which looks like Delirium's return to former glory. Only that this time it's Neo- Prog (yes, we can call it like that, it's mostly truth)

5(-), even I don't like last 6 minutes of final track that much. Because I'm in asking mood right now, I'll just say: "Guess why?".
