1 stars Usually I've got three categories of albums.Ones that I like immediately and only repeated spins will evaluate their actual half-life period, then those I don't like very much just from the beginning, but fall in love with on second or third listen. The third one, and "The Gates of Omega " belongs into this one is dedicated to albums I listen once and then never again, because they appear competely boring and unimportant to me. It was really tough not to fall asleep during the first CD and then there is even a second one, which is not much better in fact. Lengthy atmospheric parts, absolute boring rhythms, songs structured more or less in a mainstream rock manner but extended to prog-ish length and on the top of this some really typical Neoprog-ish squeaking digital keyboards. That's too much for me, sorry. I'm usually not a complete hater of this sub-genre, there are sometimes nice bands to discover and I can appreciate some stuff by the "big ones" like Marillion (Fish-era), Arena, IQ or even some of Pendragon. I'm as well not very restricted in my musical spectre, I like a lot stuff from very mellow to quite tough. But I'm absolutely allergic against boring stuff like this one here. I can't rate it higher than with 1 star, I'm sorry with all respect to the musicians!
