5 stars It would be a travesty of justice if this first album by London-based Haken were not to finish the year in the Number 1 slot, so I am moved to write a review to justify my rating of 5-stars. Whilst not exactly pure Heavy Prog, this album displays many differing prog styles including Neo, Eclectic, Symphonic and Metal but is no less good for that fact.

Original to the core, this album is by no means wears its influences on its sleeve. It takes quite a bit of getting into but once memorised and learnt is a complete belter.

An outstanding first album by a very gifted band. And, having seen them perform Aquarius live at Summer's End 2010 in Lydney, UK, I can say they are also a really fine bunch of guys too.

Looking forward to the next outing by Haken. A must buy.
