5 stars I have heard their music previously and after listening to this one, i can say without hesitation that this is their best yet. The music is a complex combination of progressive rock styles from jazz rock, modern metal with some djent riffs and symphonic adventures. The first part is showing many influences from old bands, like Gentle Giant with some vocals harmonies, and some Frank Zappa time signatures with saxophone. But the biggest influence seems to come from modern bands like Haken because of this kind of progressive rock that play with the listener by incorporating many styles and tempo changes in a single song. Many songs and especially the impressive epics "Still Searching" and "Ordinary Maniac" shows some dramatic moments where the vocals harmonies and the music comes together with growing intensity. The female and male vocals performance must have taken a lot of work here to achieve such results. The band has managed throughout this cd to combine some modern metal sound with those vocals harmonies to create some beautiful melodies without letting any technical demonstration dominate. The song "Inferior" show the control insanity of this band with quick mood changes by throwing in their serious music approach a bit of pop and lighter music. In the song "Imprisoned" the vintage keyboards are screaming with the mean male voice before a impressive break in which the drums are setting the pace for the rest of the band. "Bound in Chains" is a breather with his slower pace but with another dramatic part lead by the brilliant vocal harmonies again. You get the picture. How can i say something wrong with this little gem.
