4 stars Great album by probably one of the most important prog band of the last 15 years. With that second album they confirmed all the promises of the first album "The Light". The albums have three spectacular tracks. The opener "Beware of Darkness" and the tracks "The Doorway" and "Walking on the Wind" are all mixing perfectly accessible vocals and complex instrumentations. Those 3 songs have all the elements to remain prog classics. The suite "Time Has Come" closing the album is alas too irregular; it has some good part but would have gain by being shorter. The band produced much better suite in the future. The pop song of the album "Waste Away" does not level with the other tracks on the album but remain enjoyable to listen. On the track "Toughts" the band gives a clear idea of their vocals or instrumentals talents, it is a great homage to Gentle Giant and a good song itself. Album well recommended.
Theriver | 4/5 |
