3 stars This second I work of the Swedish band CROSS entitled "Second Movement", it pleased me even certain point, because, although it cannot consider a "masterpiece." the disk pleased in the sense that in spite to be classified in the category Nep-Prog, and to really have plenty elements of the style, it presents some variations, at least interesting, in relation to other styles of progressive as for instance the keyboards presence (eventually in duets with the guitar) playing in a timbre that simulates a brass orchestra, as in the case of Track 1 "Emergency" and still of Track 7 "Fanfarre Song" that approximates them of Symphonic-|Prog. Besides those two tracks it would like to highlight the Track 8 "Impregnable eyes" that presents a brilliant opening in the best style of Heavy-Prog or Prog-metal , however , there is no continuity in the development of the theme, although the track is very good. However, the disk left me with the clear impression that they could have conceived a more elaborated work in the sense of taking advantage of this easiness in "flirting" with other styles and in that way to please more fans of other styles of progressive music . My rate i 3 stars.
