2 stars This is more Progressive/Symphonic Metal than Heavy Prog

The album opens with "The Point of Know Return" (2.25 out of 5.00): A Symphonic Metal song filled with funny moments and black metal reminiscent. Very Complex and well played, but it's not what I really like.

"Streams" (3.00 out of 5.00): From my point of view, the best song of the entire album. Not so complex but quite enjoyable.

"Aquarium" (1.50 out of 5.00): The only thing that I like of this song its the Introduction, then it starts to reminds me those love ballads of the 80's and early 90's. So it's almost predictable and boring. Sorry.

"Eternal Rain" (2.50 out of 5.00): The second best song of the album. Again, it's almost predictable but quite enjoyable just like "Streams".

"Drowning in the Flood" (0.25 out of 5.00): The weakest song of the album. it has NOTHING to offer me.

"Sun" (1.00) Sounds sophisticated and melancholic, but I don't like it, to me it's the second weakest song of the album.

"Celestial Elixir" (1.00): It's as weak as "Sun", this song include reprises of the firts two tracks. But I don't like it what they`ve done here.

I Wouldnt call this a masterpiece. But I highly recommended to Progressive Metal and Symphonic Metal Lovers, they will taste it better than me.

2 Stars (1.75 Really)
