4 stars Where does my river flow?

I was very impressed by 'I move' and therefore very curious about this new release. The conclusion first - very good - fine work - this is nearly a masterpiece! They don't have changed their style so much unless they use female voices.

The title song 'My river flows' is a furious rocker which gives you a clue at the beginning what will happen in the folllowing 60 minutes. 'Late night salvation' follows and is one of my favourite Prog-songs in 2005. Just in the vein of Salem Hill or Echolyn having their best days. Not to believe and what a sin - they also use a drum solo - only a relic? The second reminiscence to the 70's: 'Deafening silence' - the typical long track with over 20 minutes. But unfortunately this song is not very inspiring and the reason because I don't give 5 stars.

All the other tracks have their heights. The acoustic 'Abby's Song' f.e. or 'Anything I can dream' which sounds like a new Beatles song. The beautiful 'Rose colored lenses' is another highlight of this album.

Definitely one of the best in 2005!
