4 stars Well here is a band you donīt hear from it a lot of times. This album impressed me because of that, I mean an album as great as this cannot go unheard. Albrighton, Brockett, Moore, Freeman and Howden made four great musics ( four if we say that Desolation Valley and Waves are the same track) each one working well in giving a unique sound. Thats the beauty of prog rock musicians, all the albums and works are somehow different and give you a different experience. The album opens with the 12 minute epic A Tab in The Ocean, which has turned in one of my favourite musics. They're sound reminds me a bit of symphonic Prog meets Psychedelic/ Space Rock, and you can hear that essentially in the incredible instrumental parts where Albrighton's riffs and the keyboard work of Freeman give you landscapes merged with a sea of sound. Desolation Valley/Waves, Crying in The Dark and King of Twilight are three amazing songs that work really well together, you could call this three works a second part of the album and what a part it is, King of Twilight ends the album on a high in an album that surprised me since it isnīt exactly one of the most known works, or at least it wasnt for me. An album worth listening and a proof that the more you try to look for new sounds even if youīve listened Prog for a lot of years you can discover or re-discover some of the best albums in music.
