4 stars Am truly amazed with the music quality produced by this four-piece American prog band. The music can summarized this way, probably: early King Crimson with vocalist's voice quality in between Peter Hammill (VdGG) / Greenslade's or Nick Barrett (Pendragon) vocalist and the music is combined with neo prog. So what would it be like? Yeah, it's a mixture of everything, I think. But, you will find there is no such single track as bad or good ones as every single track is truly excellent. If you like symphonic prog music with soaring keyboard / organ sounds which sometimes turn out to be a mellotron, you will definitely enjoy this album.

Song like the epic track "Into The Dream" (22:03) comprises multi segments with relatively long duration, individually, with keyboard-based music as main rhythm section combined tempo changes augmented with powerful mellotron inserts. The inclusion of neo prog style guitar solo has enriched the song textures. There are some soft guitar riffs but they are faraway from being a prog metal. On soft music like "Before The Storm" there is similarity in style with the music of Pendragon or Arena - the neo prog bands. The only difference is probably the accentuated vocal line and the heavier use of mellotron that remind me to the early Crimson albums.

Definitely it's a highly recommended album. Keep on proggin' ..!
