5 stars Fortunately we have many prog bands that we can admire and love in 2011..Opeth,SX,DT,POS,PT,Shadow Galley and Queensryche..all of them are great bands that proved their quality year after year album after album..there's no doubt that only SX and DT play nowadays prog METAL..Queensryche has changed it's sound all the way,whereas SG has fewer riffs,fewer METAL parts in their songs..So now we have DT and SX who composes long songs full of technical ''phrases'' in order to fascinates the fans and on the other hand we have POS that chose to change it's style and write a whole another type of songs..As a result of this,POS created the magical doesn't contain a new Beyond The Pale or a new Perfect doesn't need one of those..POS respect the past but they look the future as one new musical trip with new musical horizons ahead of it..RS1 has brand new sounds from funk to jazz from blues to hard rock from psychedelic to prog..from tghe beginning to the end the music of POS has so many levels that of course you cannot appreciate it HAVE to hear it over and over again and then you CANNOT love it.,you CANNOT stop listening to it and suddenly it'll earn a place in your heart..All songs has this ''little'' thing that misses from SX and DT last works(Iconoclast,Systematic Chaos,BC&SL) called EMOTION!!this only thing that matters after all..and the only thing that ''lady'' called music can give us..and that's the reason that make music so unique!!listen to Sisters and you'll find yourself unable even to speak,listen to No Way and She Likes To Hide and remember the old-fashioned 70's rock..listen to Sleeping Under The Stars and remember the magic of Queen..listen to Innocence and remember the Zeppelin feeling..But in the end,what makes this album so SPECIAL you can discover it only if you hear IT from the beginning to the end without a little intermission..

''Kneel'' to this magical and authentic creation only POS can deliver!!
