4 stars Marvellous piece of symphonic progrock with influences from bands such as King Crimson and PFM. But mostly one kinda way expressing prog rock in the wake of it's fall in the late 70's. Fresh, exciting, new sounding music although it's older now than i'm now. One of the seldom pure instrumental albums that i listen to. The players have a very unique taste in melodies and songstructures, the chosen sounds of the instruments here are never insipid. The Using of synthesizers and guitars are very well figured, and the whole band plays awfully together. The Drumming here is amazing! fills, beats, cymbal hits are almost perfect here. So, the total sound of the album is great and not too bright and the music is composed with apt ears. This album has only one minus so I won't give it 5 stars. Although vocalist isn't always needed in music, here i think it would've filled in some gaps better, and the album wouldn't have sounded so humdrum all the time.
