5 stars Porcupine Tree meets Renaissance.

I really liked their debut, Awakening, but they've really gelled on this one. I believe Rachel Cohen joined a bit late for their first one after the rest of the band had been developing most of the songs, so she hadn't fully integrated, and maybe the other band members were just getting comfortable together as well. What you get with Dark Angel is a really nice package of music and album artwork.

The metal in the music doesn't overwhelm the prog and these guys are really skilled musicians. The vocal mix, three of them, gives Pure Reason Revolution a run for their money. A fresh voice in prog that should not be missed but inexplicably is still under a lot of people's radar screens.

I'm wearing this one out. Might just be my favorite release of 2008.
