5 stars This is a magnificent album. It has everything a masterpiece should contain: strong melodies, excellent riffing (a bit like Redemption), unusual twists and turn (a bit like Pain of Salvation, although not as dark), loads of variation and above all: lots of emotion. Jim Grey has an excellent voice. In the heavy instrumental parts, the band is as good as any other Prog Metal band. But where they really make a difference is in the more subtle moments. You can listen to the entire album online. I was instantly persuaded to buy it! I like the longer songs best because of the many moods and impressive musicianship. But there is one song that I really can't get enough of: "Secret". Absolutely brilliant. I really hope this band gets more attention because they really deserve it. Just listen to it and you''ll know what I mean...
