3 stars This is a French Canadian band who sing in English except for one track. Keyboards are the main focus here, although there is some soaring guitar at times.These guys do have their own sound, although I was reminded of SAGA a couple times.

"Behind The Curtain" is a short instrumental with spacey synths. "A Moment In Time" opens with lots of synths and drums. Some nice guitar after a minute and vocals follow. Pulsating organ 2 1/2 minutes in with chunky bass. Soaring guitar follows. "Soliel D' Aube" opens with acoustic guitar as French vocals and synths comes in. Best part of the song is 2 1/2 minutes in when the guitar solos and bass throbs.

"Chasing The Skyline" is one of the best songs and an instrumental at that, lots of time changes and some great guitar work makes this the albums highlight as far as i'm concerned. It opens with pulsating organ ala GENESIS. "Ulysse's Return" is mellow with synths to open. Drums and a fairly heavy sound takes over. It settles when vocals come in. Spoken words follow. Yes this is a concept album. "Seeking The Moon" opens with drums and synths as almost spoken vocals come in. Not a fan of this one. "Solitude" features gentle acoustic guitar melodies throughout. "The Faded Years" is a light tune with the focus on the vocals. Not a fan. "Running Backwards" is heavier and more aggressive.

Barely 3 stars.
