2 stars 01. Higher Circles Do not be fooled by the pace 'galloping' of battery and the keyboard means' butcher ', the vocal half Geddy Lee is a charm and melody itself too. Some guitars at the bottom, tons of good keyboards and vocals. I learned a lot like the sound of Neo Prog, the influence of Marillion is visible, which is very good. The guitar is very arpegios of Jasons Nick does a competent job.

02. The Pleasure Of Hope This battery is the highlight of Nigel Harris, sensational start. The keyboards are so great as after. Much anguish before the guitar break, it seems strangling the listener. Good verses with contagious melodies and instrumentation and sound.

03. Leviathan The highlight of almost all the tracks the keyboard is almost always' scheduled 'full of fast passages that are repeated from Rick Carter. The keyboards and Midis 80s have made the bands had a multitude of sounds that was before complicadíssimo to obtain, even Rick Wakeman keyboards and its 300 or Keith Emerson and his truck just for the keyboards in the 80s the thing became easier. Many parts between instrumental voice, you know what I ever start to find more great bands such Neo prog 80's (laughter) and I thought that was a band Pendragon Prog Metal.

04. Alaska a) At Home With The Earth b) Snowfall The more travel (in the profound sense of the word) guitars that remind me the Pink Floyd with David Gilmour of dedilhados (influence of 8 between 10 guitarists of the genre). Many great land of keyboards and bass of Peter Gee always following everything very closely , making a fine solo fretless until after the second part. The second part is all about the instrumental, with quick passes and all of the instruments and frenetic pace and contagious. A highlight of a fine.

05. Circus For here the air synthesizers put a strange, especially when the beats are too strange at times (laughs), the second part is the turn of a line of fantastic and low land of keyboards and guitar, the battery does a crazy pace well played. When all around things change of vision, are clear, calm and are thinking, and in the heart say that something must be done! (as I come to these conclusions? Not that I know, laughter).

06. Oh Divine Very nice! After a series of instrumental and long, enough to hear a beautiful melody and whimsical, which lasts a little longer until it reaches a higher Rush (another big influence of the band, the Rush 80's).

07. The Black Knight The longest track on the disc keeps a series of surprises and changes. After a series of keyboards and vocals, all very well appointed, say what spoils the 80's is the sound, I agree! But you know what? Why not here, things will not happen, the sound is 80's? Is! But without rancid, just good music. The final part of the band is led by the keyboards and the variations, of course, always around the guitar tone with that clean and nice touch for a little more for the staff. Almost a guitar!

08. Fly High Fall Far This is a start very different from the rest of the disc, reminded me a little Tears For Fears, except for the fact of having more keyboards, at least in the beginning, and another, Tears For Fears have things well in the Rock Art discography them. but in the end that track has a bitch Rock same footprint, with parts of heavier guitar and vocals sung 'a whole'!

09. Victims Of Life Sensational thing that the band's entire instrumental break in a break-in a beautiful fingering and guitar, keyboards this band are great too. When the voice back in the second part of the whole thing changes figure, the song is slower, broken pieces of battery, serious low, but still there fingerings of guitar sound.
