4 stars Stimulating music. Wonderful journey.

The Prog Metal scene is now saturated by many clone bands of Dream Theater and Symphony X, which can be a little disappointing but at the end, there are really good bands that shines on the shadows of those other great bands. Pagan's Mind is maybe the best example of a derivate band with it's own talent.

This was the third album I have the chance to hear of them and was a wonderful experience to hear the freshness of their performance, the talent of the musicians and the developing of the concept. Yes, they seem to repeat themselves with all this Gods Aliens conceptual album with the shinning eyed girls on the cover sleeves, but the music on it's own is great. They construct great moods and the music worth for itself more than trying to compare with the great leagues of Prog Metal.

In a time when is difficult to escape the shadow of Dream Theater influence, this band is bold enough to accept their influence and tries to bring something new and they succeed in their 3 last albums. This one in particular is almost a back to back to Celestial: Calling. The music, sound, performance and production are almost the same. This is not a bad thing, because they have a very high standard for their music and production, so if you enjoy quality Prog Metal music, you will appreciate this band for sure. I want to point at the singers voice, versatile, energetic, aggressive and original, seem to have enough space to grow and he is a wonderful singer.

On in on, the album is great. If you like Prog Metal you have to check this out. This is maybe one the best bands of the sub-genre. Quality, good songwriting, excellent performance and stimulating compositions is what you will find in this album. 4 stars because for me, their masterpiece is Celestial: Calling. Everything good in this album is great in that another one. Great album still...
