5 stars In my opinion, this is an incredible album. I have it, and it is very often in my CD player. If you listen to it, you will not be disappointed: "an electric violin which blows rock and Bartok, flutes from the East, and Sumerian saxophones" are ready to bring your mind on a fantastic journey to the Far East of the world, to Nilotic landscapes and infinite deserts, India and Turkey, Egipt and the Sphinx. Dave Arbus is a great musician, the sound of his violin fits the tracks perfectly, and the atmosphere of the whole album acquires some kind of misticism, sometimes relaxing, sometimes more aggressive. In this album there are a lot of moments of extraordinary beauty and exotic taste, and also fantastic instrumental parts. The outstanding songs are "Northern Hemisphere" (decline and fall of Western civilisation), the exotic ballad "Isadora", "Waterways" and the long "In the stable of the Sphinx", but the whole album is very good. I really recommend it to everyone who wants to listen to something different, to every prog fan who thinks -" I want to hear something strange and beautiful at the same time!"- Thanks to Progarchives that put this band in the list. Highly recommended, i can't stop listening to it. Listen and dream.
