3 stars I got this album from the band many moons ago and I been listening to it on and off since then.

I have to admit Fusonic's brand of symphonic prog is not the one I normally enjoy most. Their music is a mix of fusion and the likes of Camel with influences from new-age combos like Jeremy and Clearlight. A lot of new-age influences, I am afraid. The music is guitar driven with long electric guitar passages which winds itself through some pretty pedestrian melody lines. Inbetween this, we also get some piano driven and acoustic guitar meditation pieces. There is no vocals on this album. The guitars is the leading instrument here and meditation is preferred instead of technical brilliance and quirky time shifts. There is none of the latter here. I would compare listening to this album as a roadtrip over the Sahara desert or even a roadtrip over the prairie in the USA.

That's describes the music. Over to the quality bit.

The quality of the music here is good throughout and even great if this is your type of music. I have to declare a luke warm interest in this type of music. Camel is not my favorite band. But I still find this album very good at places, but also pretty dull in some places too. This is a debut album though and Fusonic has shown a lot of talent and guts on this album. I would most definate put this band on a list of bands well worth keeping an eye on while declaring this album as a good album which does deliver up to a certain point but not beyond that point.

3 stars
