5 stars I must admit that this is one of the best albums that I have ever listened to. The thing that convinced me to start listening to this band is Damien Wilson's voice and talent. I have heard his voice before on some of ARJEN LUCASSEN's songs. Actually, " ...And The Druids Turn to Stone" is one of my faves from AYREON.

Returning to Landmarq. This album is mindblowing. From the first song ("Killing Fields ") to the last one. Each of the band members has a significant role in the songs. This is evidence of their musicianship. But... I haven't heard in a very long time such a way to blend the guitars, keyboard and voice. It really sounds perfect. Also, the sound is very original, since this doesn't resemble me of anything else. Well, maybe the second song sounds a bit like MARILLION, during the FISH era. At least the keyboard gave me that impression. However, there are some songs that can be considered highlights on this album. The first one is "Killing Fields". My second favourite song is "Tippi Hedren". "Free Fall" is an instrumental song that should impress all the progheads. Although it is short, it surely is memorable. "Terrcotta Army" is also worth a listen, as it features a haunting march-like sound.

This is really an essential album. Buy it and you won't be disappointed.
