3 stars 3.5 stars. LANDMARQ's first studio record was produced by Clive Nolan and Karl Groom. There are some excellent tunes on this record as well as some that are simply ok.

"Killing Fields" falls under the latter category, Damian Wilson's vocals are the main focus on this one, with a tasteful guitar solo 2 minutes in. "Forever Young" is a really good song. It's a feel good tune with light guitars and keys. The vocals stop as were treated to a long instrumental section. "April First" is another fantastic song that is an instrumental. The guitar melody really brings to mind CAMEL. "Foxing The Fox" features guitar and synth runs throughout with theatrical vocals.

"Terracotta Army" is slower paced with vocals and a heavy beat throughout reminding one of a marching army. "Free Fall" is another great instrumental featuring a cool guitar melody throughout. "Tippi Hedren" and "After I Died Somewhere" are ok songs. "Suite: St.Helens" is CAMEL sounding again with some great vocals that come into the song halfway through.This song is quite uplifting at times. "Borders" is a light , upbeat song.

Overall a good release that fans of Neo should love. This is worth checking out.
