From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Prog Reviewer
3 stars This one is quite a decent album for a band listed under neo prog. At least not the typical Marillion-Genesis-whatever-clone type of music. It fuses rock, progressive rock, jazz and folk into something what the band is calling "Underground Melodic Rock" on their website. The concept behind it is obviously about a society enslaved by technology and their adventures until they finally reach freedom. The five mostly very long epic songs are featuring fine symphonic arrangements, changing moods and both musicianship and vocals are fine. Besides traditional rock instruments they are using as well organ, piano, Mellotron and flute along with some ethereal vocals. Some parts like the title track remind more to jazz fusion. Actually I could not tell any other band they sound like. Not really a great album but a very enjoyable one and a nice listen if one loves retro prog. Good, but not essential!
