3 stars After their debut album it was the turn of their second.

"Super Nova" (3.75 out of 5.00) This song consists of four tracks, all of wich are differentiable each other. The Introduction is "Arrival of the traveller" which gives a good atmosphere of mystery, "Blood Red Sun" is the first sung track, it almost makes feel goosebumps, "Say Goodbye to Love" is a beautiful song, very different from the previous, delightful with a outstanding mellotron work, "Prepare to Meet the Maker" is the outro of "Super Nova" and the least interesting of the four songs although it`s enjoyable.

"C.B.S." (2.75 out of 5.00) Good song, moderately complex and catchier.

"Once on a Windy Day" (2.50 out of 5.00) My least favorite, serious, but not bad.

"Blue Skies and Alibis" (3.00 out of 5.00) This song brings back joy, I like this refiller despite its simplicity.

"Hold Me Down" (2.75 out of 5.00) The chorus are outstanding but the song itself simple, weak and slow.

3 stars well received and slightly better than their debut.
