4 stars MIRIODOR have dropped from a four piece to a trio on this album. The violinist is gone yet this is still in a similar style to their previous self titled record. It's maybe not quite as samey as that one and thankfully it's about 30 minutes shorter too. So we get drums, sax and piano while each member doubles up on synths.

"Trans-Siberian" is a top three and it sounds great once it gets going. So much going on. It's darker 2 minutes in. Love this. Then it changes back to the previous soundscape. "Lizard's Language" is a short piece with prominant sax and a collage of sounds. "Attention !" opens with samples of spoken words then sax and a slow beat take over. "Jerusalem" is a top three track for me. I just really like the sound of the sax, piano and drums on this one. "Procession" is another sax driven tune. Piano and drums lead 2 minutes in though but the sax returns quickly. "Vision" is haunting at first then experimental before the sax arrives. It's a little crazy 1 1/2 minutes in.

"Glimpse" is a sax dominated piece. "Solace" is a little more laid back as sax and piano lead. "3rd Warning" is a top three. I like the sound here. A calm before 1 1/2 minutes as the sax cries out. A great section follows. "Standing" is more of that sax, piano and drums while "Viking" is uptempo with dissonant sax until it settles back. it's intense again late. "Free Fall" is interesting the way the sax cries out on and off throughout. Cool sound.

A low 4 stars but worth that rating in my opinion. The debut was amazing and what would follow this record is where they start to really impress again. Still if your into sax led instrumental music you can't go wrong here.
