3 stars 3.5 for sure

Nine Path is the forth album of this already well known band from Holland. Released in 2011 they keep the same formula in composing and aswell line-up remained stable , a very good thing because this way they've always offer solid albums with plenty of memorable passages. This album is almost no diffrent then the predecesors, maybe in places they metalized a little thir sound, the combination of neo prog with almost prog metal is very efficient here, example is Summerland , the beggining of the tune sounds almost like Dream Theater. Very good are the instrumental sections like on The river, great keyboards from Gerben Klazinga, the instrumental Pride and joy is another winner for sure. All in all a worthy album for sure, but I don't think is their best, personaly I like most their second release Under a new sign followed by Realm of shadows, this one Nine path is very close. A solid and quite typical Knight Area album. 3.5 stars is best I can give.
