5 stars The first time I heard this album, my mind went somewhere else to the sound of Genesis and other 70's prog bands. Yes, it's a bit different than other TD pervious albums, this one is more melodic. Especially Cloudburst Flight, the second track. This prog pattern still develop into the third track, Thru' Metamorphic Rocks, but brilliantly halfway of this 14 minute-epic, their traditional stark sequence filled the entire track until the end. Absolutely brilliant. In addition, the title track, sounds familiar with their famous haunting 70's sounds combined with prog elements.

This is another interesting fragment in TD's musical journey, because started from the previous album 'Cyclone' they began experimenting with standard prog sounds and vocals, and this time they dropped the vocalist, and left the drummer.

Another interesting era of the post Baumann's period, where Froese and Franke started to reach the peak of their creativity. Simply five stars, because this album is acceptable by both prog and electronic fan like me.
