4 stars Overall, this album is beautifully composed, well structured, rich with catchy melody in many segments, integrating a wide range of musical elements and influences but is still cohesive as an album. The skills contributed by each musician are all at par excellent with special attention on dynamic bass lines, roaring keyboard / Hammond in symphonic and psychedelic style, powerful vocals, and stunning guitar. Musically, this is an excellent and almost flawless album. Despite heavy influences from previous bands, their music is not derivative. As far as musical flow, the band concludes the album with climax that brings listener to musical ecstasy and curious mind that drive for another spins. It does happen here - unlike the first album that did not. Beside music, I think the CD sonic quality has improved compared to debut album. Hamadryad is a band to consider in prog arena. Overall rating is 4+ out of 5 with a possibility to upgrade into full five stars as my appreciation grows together with number of spins. Highly recommended! Keep on proggin' ..!

Progressively yours,

Human beings are sometime slaved. By what they are fighting to escape. Buried behaviours increase tenfold. Once unearthed and waken. [Omnipresent Umbra - Hamadryad]
