5 stars Every now and then a little gem presents itself. I'd never heard of Leap Day before, and then there was this airplay on Morow radio and I was pleasantly surprised and curious right away. So I bought the album immediately and I must say the cd has rarely left my player ever since.

Skylge's Lair is a must have for all NeoProg and Sympho lovers. There are eight great songs on the album. No groundbreaking stuff, but very enjoyable and of a high quality standard! Some say there is a lack of creativity, but I would say the opposite! They don't reinvent NeoProg, that much is true, but the way they manage to give their own twist on the genre is superb to my ears. Listen to Home At Last, or Walls, or the title song which is an instrumental. And then there is this beautiful little instrumental called Humble Origin. Just amazing!

If you like lots of keys and great guitars, if you like very strong melodies and emotional vocals, this one is definitely your cup of tea. Four and a half stars for the music and a half one for the beautiful artwork. That makes 5 twinkling Dutch stars.
