4 stars This is a great album, really! ROOTS OF CONSCIOUSNESS has created a very crazy, interesting mood on this CD!

The song "Singing The Praises Of Pious Whores" is the opener of this disc and I'm sure that the band didn't choose it as the first track for no reason. The scary voice which also could have been a part of an examination predicts the craziness (not meant negative) of this album. ROOTS OF CONSCIOUSNESS is taking you on a trip full of bizarre sounds and frightening beauteousness.

Outstanding songs of this CD are "Time Out Of Mind", "Candelabra", "Remorse", "Lethe Wharf" and "Minuteman" which has a very interesting and beautiful albeit short ending which is hardly abutted on JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH's "Bourrée". But each song on it's own is great.

Unfortunately this was the only album of ROOTS OF CONSCIOUSNESS and regrettably you won't find any websites related to this band (with the exception of the progarchives), so nobody seems to know why these guys broke up. Alas!

However, I think if this band would have gone on, they would probably be well known by progheads. ROOTS OF CONSCIOUSNESS is a must for each good prog-collection!
