3 stars Having not listened yet to their first one this brand-new second release by semi-professional band ADVENT I've to say is a very good and solid work in regard of Retro Prog. GG-reminiscenses are quite obvious especially in the vocal harmonies but as said already in the review for their debut those are not the only influences. Though I usually prefer to listen to the original bands from the 70s this one is certainly worth a couple of spins for any retro prog fan. Absolute highlight is for sure the 18-minute "Ramblin' Sailor" offering typical GG style with nice flute and multilayered vocals. Musicianship throughout the album is absolute flawless.

Wouldn't consider it an essential one, but anyway this work deserves 3,5 stars and anyone who's into that kind of stuff should support these excellent musicians by buying the CD.
