4 stars Deep and Though ambient... kind of depresive and sad... but great still...

I always came to the music of Kevin Moore waiting for something that really makes me dive into another reality and let me flow into a strange ambient... this is really succeded in this particular album, wich is properly a soundtrack of a weird movie... that I don't have seen yet... and I really don't mind to...

Musicaly, the theme is repetitive and slow pace through the whole album. Someone could say is boring... but really you have to let you flow through... The samples, the repetitive keys, the soft guitars, his robotic voice, the slow drum kit, everything moves you to a relax environment where if you aloud yourself, you can discover depressive feelings... So yeah, is though to get into this album if your'e too happy or excited... is ideal before you go to bed, or in a rest time period... is really something that demands more than attention to the structure, it's just about an strange scape trhough deep emotions... guess Moore always was an emotion type and we find some in his Dream Theater fase...

So, for the prog fans, aloud yourself to let aside your addiction to fast and crazy rock solos and get you to another level of understanding of music... the feeling... yes, this is too sad for some people but that's the exciting thing, at least for me... music is about feelings... and this piece can really mess up your mind... and your emotions... so is good for the heart... really...

Then, listen to the speech in the song Human Love... is kind of crazy, but you really get somethings that you won't find nowhere else... I recomend this album for anyone who wants to get emotion from music... is very experimental and ambient... ideal to listen at night... 4 stars... it really worth it...!!!
