5 stars oH MaN!! tHIs OnE's A KeEpeR! Hey, one of the 5 best prog bands from 1990-2004. In 15 years, Anglagard has reached new standards in quality, dexterity and elegance. Who are those people? What talent!! This is a trully great prog ballet. Higher in quality than Epilog in my humble opinion. Why? More punchy and dizzyness along the whole album. Epilog is strong in some points, but overall, this one packs a tighter and meaner wallop. A more agresssive approach. I like the 'Tony Banks' way of playing the keyboards and the flute is played by...a lovely lady. Perhaps it could explain the emotion and the delicate intrigue the album is providing. Man oh man, with record like these, 90's prog shines with brillant colors. The first track is especially tasty and catchy. Such power combine with an almost feminine, graceful way. You know what I mean, that's why there made of sugar, spice and everything nice. Pretty cool artwork and jaw-dropping pictures inside the cover. Hey, they even tooked the inside pictures themselves. Once again, WHO ARE THEY? And that drummer! What a freakin' drum pounding viking! And the keyboardist! Tony Banks ressurected! And the guitar player! He carries many melodies only by himself, and we feel every single note he's playing. Makes a great sound. You'll see. A warm hug from the cold, cold north. The best thing from Sweden since guitar prodigy Ingwie Malmsteen. My 90's pick with Echolyn and Spock's Beard for best prog over 1990. * WAY BEYOND 5 STARS*
