4 stars I did not know hourglass till now,but as it proved, it was a huge mistake. In this epic(both CD's contain music almost 140 minutes) we hear an excellent lyrical progressive metal with fully respect to progressive rock. Fortunately, the voice is pretty good(many prog bands suffer in this sector), the bass player is awesome and adds volume to this masterpiece. Generally, all the members deliver us an excellent example of how progressive metal should be played. It is a pitty that this band has not gained the recognition it deserves. Complex structures, feelings, a blend with other genres of music, long enough songs-all the components needed to produce a state-of-the art musical monument. I cannot yet decide whether it is an excellent addition to any prog collection or a masterpiece. I will rate it with 4 stars, I hope I am not underestimating this gem.
