2 stars This is the second album for this band from Belgium.

The highlights for me are "Asian Love" and "The Light" which are both uptempo songs with keyboards galore and some good guitar. "Valley Of Gold-Chapter I" may be the best tune though, with that dark and ominous intro followed by drums then guitar. It turns into a faster paced song. "Break Down Soon" ,"Farewell To God" and "Don't Fear The Unknown" are good songs although "Farewell to God" stands out above the other two. It features a spacey synth intro followed by piano, vocals and orchestral melodies. It gets really good after 4 1/2 minutes with some great guitar !

The down side of this record for me are the vocals, not all the time but sometimes the accent and tone is a distraction. There are four songs I don't like at all, as in "Fires of Hell" ,"Remember Paris" ,"Time" and "Better End".The sap is flowing feely on "Remember Paris" and in other places on this album.

So although there is some good symphonic prog here to enjoy, there are too many songs I want to skip each time I listened to this. I can't recommend this except to fans and collectors only.
