4 stars What a wonderful album. There was a time when I questioned myself as to why I like the particular types of music I do... what a tremendous waste of time. You should just listen to as much as you can and try to appreciate the art. Sometimes it takes multiple listens for me to appreciate a work, sometimes the attraction is immediate and powerful. Such was the case with this. The first thing that catches my ear is that it is interesting music. Different form what practically everybody else is doing. If you don't like vocals, steer clear. But if you appreciate distinctive voices and unusual melody, dig in. As Finnforest said, there is subtlety in this music. If I were asked who they sound like... well they have their own sound, but I am reminded of Terraced Garden from the past and Glass Kites from the present at times. Thank you Prog Archives and Finnforest for bringing this artist (and so many more) to my attention. Four stars from me on this one. Take a moment and check this out, it's worth it. And if it doesn't appeal to you, revisit it later when your mood changes. It may be subtle, it may seem quiet, but if you rate your music by how it can influence how you feel- listen. It is a powerful album.
