3 stars 3.5 stars. Good album from the band, but they have a few that are better in my opinion.

Things get started with an instrumental with lots of keys and drums. "Riding The Fence" is an uptempo tune that seems almost too fast, but it did grow on me. "The Last Enemy" features some good guitar. "January" is a real highlight for me, with good vocals and a cool guitar riff that comes and goes. Nice keyboard solo as well. "Let Loose The Arrow" features some good vocal harmonies and a melodic keyboard melody. "We Don't Know" is my other favourite with some teriffic organ and guitar passages. "Sweet Home Suite" has David Ragsdale guesting on violin, and I would say that instrumentally this is the strongest track.

This is a good symphonic record, but if your new to the band I would start with one of their higher rated albums.
