5 stars Fragile part II

It's really amazing what a progress can be seen in this symphonic prog band from H√?¬łnefoss, Norway with the release of this magic album - Rites at Dawn! I named my review Fragile part II, because of the similarities with legendary album Fragile by symphonic prog godfathers - Yes. I don't mean to mention the term similarities in negative aspect, but as spiritual inspiration and continuation of the classic way of songwriting and playing symphonic prog in modern actualities of 2011. Without imitating roughly the old classic, Rites at Dawn by Wobbler carries the tradition of making the exact same type of symphonic prog album in precise manner.

It fills my soul with absolute same type of emotion as the above Yes' classic; but only as positive power and continuation. On the other hand, it distinguishes from both previous Wobbler's album with maturity and clarification of the conception and ideas, turning into breath-taking and well-constructed masterpiece. From the first note till the last one the album enacts the purpose it was created - to shine and astound the listeners with hypersonic and highly-saturated level of musical waves in typical symphonic prog tradition. Highly recommended and strong candidate for album of the year. 5 stars
