4 stars It took me some time to get this CD. And after seeing such a vicious attack on this band as some reviewer did I almost didn't buy at all. But since I liked their earlier works (specially the Fear CD) I went ahead. Thank God I did. It is an excellent neo prog album, specially if you're into the early Marillion style. Ok, they do not break any new grounds, it's not an album which is gonna change your life, but still so few do that. It's very well played, the songs are well crafted, the musicanship is flawless, the production is adequate and the singer does a fine job.

Actually I can't find anything wrong with this album and I'm still wondering what made this guy do such an attack if there's so much crap being put out nowadays and being called "progressive". I find myself listining to this CD from begining to end enjoying it a lot. No fillers, not really a weak song. The more you hear the more you like it. A typical neo prog CD: lush keyboards, tasteful guitar solos, virtuosity working for the songs, a dramatic singer (who does not overblow it) with a fine, distinctive voice. Excellent arrangements. If you like the classical neo british neo prog (Marillion, Twelfth Night, IQ, Pendragon, etc) this is highly recommended.
