5 stars What an extraordinary surprise that is touched by the magical hands of 70s. Every single note that flows by, reminds you the gem of those amazing years. The recording, the tone of the drums and the even the sound of guitar are adorned by the contemporary insight of today's progressive rock standarts. With these in hands, we might say that Diagonal tried an incredibly hard thing to find the gem of 70s again, but since they did it magnificently, their great challenge ended with a huge victory.

Every song on the album is special in my opinion. But my special attention is Cannon Misfire since it carries the intensity of repetition. A Magma-ish but less experimental style of repetition and slower of course. This is what you'd like to hear when you want to listen a special album from 21st century.

In the instrumentation, guitar and drums are really impressive to me. Firstly, the guitar...I had not heard such sweet solos for a very long time. The guitarist is doing his job in a perfectly right way. And the drums, I think the drummer is the main factor behind the band to find the gem of 70s.

This album is a real treasure for the listener since it is both a contemporary piece of art and a classic gem of the times that this music was born.
