2 stars The band of the virtuoso Richard Andersson, a master of keyboards.

The new album The Inner Circle Of Reality is not different of the first Time Requiem.

Obviously, this album is very high technical and neo-classical but it does not sounds original. It looks like Symphony X, but it is not as good as the masters. The playing of Richard Andersson remembers the guitar hero Michael Romeo, espiecially on the solos. But these are too long, generally longer than 1'30". This reproach can be made concerning the tracks. Too long and not very inspired. Evenmore, the vocals are not very original (a clone of Russel Allen?).

However, some passages are interesting like the instrumental part of "The Inner Circle Of Reality" or "Reflections".

In conclusion, an album only for keyboardists (they will disgusted and impressed!!) or fans of Richard Andersson.
