1 stars On good fortune I bought this album about 13 years ago. I played it and threw it in a dark corner to never play it again. Since I want to review all my prog albums I gave it another listen, maybe my taste had changed or something, you never know. But alas, that was not the case, it still is what it was then: simply not good enough. That is mainly the execution, the performance I'm talking about, these guys are no great musicians to say the least. The only positiv point are the compositions, they are absolutely not bad. Actually, they had better be songwriters than musicians. Just a piece of advice, but I read here that this album of 1990 is their only one so I don't even know if they are still into music at all.

No really, the voacals are poor, the instrumental handling is below moderate, I even hear some false notes in the songs. Too bad, if these songs were played by a class act like Arena, Pendragon or Clepsydra for instance it could have had 4 or 5 stars. But now it has to settle for one.
