2 stars I agree with the first review: for me this 4th studio full album is a disappointment. This is not a bad cd and surely deserves 3 to 31/2 stars in a more general rock site. My 2 stars are because (1) here we have a PROG site and (2) this band previously performed splendid albums as "Journey to end of the night" and "Light of day, day of darkness". Apparently the guys are interested in more mainstream audiences. Unfortunately the delightful female vocals are gone since the 2nd album. Also gone are the long tracks, for now we have most of them inside 4-5 min - a radio friendly desire? I am sad too that the last influences of the awesome and unfortunately extinct IN THE WOODS (the drummer Kobro - yet credited in this album) seems to be out of the band for the next album. It is only recommended to fans of the band and general metal fans. **1/2 stars.
