From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I think this album when I got it in 1993, was a lifesaver for me. It introduced me this wonderful world of progressive rock and I listened and listened.

The singer has a very distinguish and remarkable voice, not so far from Gabriel, Lee or Fish, but it still has it's own character. The overall sound is very professional and clear, so it must have been recorded in a real good studio.

The playing is also very high standard, just listen to those ultraspeed guitar licks and fine interplay in the instrumentals Seven Down and Drastic Measures.

Marigold is a song with a touching melody and killer keyboard riff, if this song would have been made by a famous band, it would have been huge hit and still can if God exists. Skies of Evermore is another song with a great melody and melancholy. Then on the other end you can find songs like Darkness and the miniopera Misunderstanding After Mistake.

One song Revelation, has one verse made up using band names as lyrics. Subtle, but clever: "It Bites Marillion on the Twelfth Night of Rush. They all tried, but bitterly failed in replacing Genesis".

All this with tongue-in-cheek, of course :)
