4 stars This is one of the best greek prog (and probably generally) bands. After their quite impressive debut "Excerpts" in 2002, their second album came as a very pleasant surprise. The strong influences from well known prog metal bands (in "Excerpts") are blended in a superb mix which is dominated by the band's own character. This is real prog metal with very interesting rhythm shifting, a very good production, great samplings and loops. In my opinion, the most oustanding element in this concept album is the folk (mainly greek and latin) melodies which are very precisely scattered in the album. The voice and the bass of the legendary Fates Warning (undoubtly the main influence of Fragile Vastness) are present in this album. Ray Alder and Joey Vera contribute to one song each ("Love And Loss" & "Ya Va Illegando El Dia" respectively) as special guests. Favourite tracks: "Somewhere", "Renaissance", "Coma". "Going Down" is artistically perfect (really creepy...)
