From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Got this album on the advice of a Brazilian prog site review, the cover itself got me hooked in firstly [ magnificent artist ] but the music takes the front seat once listened to with soaring hammond organ and eerie haunting mellotron, very reminicent of early King Crimson / Yes. The vocals are crystal and remind me a little of Dave Gilmour/ John Wetton. backing track production is also very full. The opening track kicks in with a wall of vintage synthesizer sounds and Hammond with melodic twin guitars holding the very very catchy melody, lyrics are a bit surreal but the chorus has the potential of a classic hit, there is also Believe me now which is a bit Asia in content but also a contender for FM radio. Th mainly instrumental Building the perfect universe gives you a trancy intro but soon transforms into a full on ELP organ bash with shades of Genesis and again Gilmour assosiation crops up in the screaming giuitars from Tony Drake. Tony Drake takes lead vocals on the last track which is recorded live and proves the band can addapt thier music very well to the live enviroment, this track too has the haunting early 70s feel given by the ever present Mellotron. All in all a great new sounding band and a must have album for all progressive and classic rock fans !!!!!!, Four stars ****
