3 stars The second album from this one man project.

Again, we are treated to instrumental rock in the area between prog metal and post rock. That and some very strong influences from symphonic prog and some inklings of fusion and jazz.

The compositions is mostly post rock with strong buildups and tonnes of noise with some more acoustic, pastoral parts. The noise is mainly made by guitars with keyboards adding textures to the cascades of guitars. The acoustic parts is mainly done by acoustic guitars with again keyboards adding textures. Textures that gives the music a symphonic prog feel.

The music here is by no means the most exciting music in the scene. But it works and the music is good. The mix of post rock and pastoral symph prog is innovative though and should perhaps inspire other bands too.

This is a good album although not heart stopping exciting. Good effort though.
