Review by hdfisch
2 stars This album was the first and only one I listened to from that band so far. To describe the music that is played here, well I would call it some kind of AOR stuff merged with a touch of Alternative Metal. Overall it's more rocking than it is progressive. But the point, that the vocal skills of singer John Paul Strauss (who's claiming to be related to the famous Austrian composer family) are obviously not very high even sounding shrill sometimes is putting its value even more down..

There are no real highlights to report about. Songs that are a bit (at least in parts) outstanding of the rest are Legend Of Green, which is an instrumental with keyboards and acoustic parts and How It Goes sounding like a kind of Symphonic Art-Rock blended with Prog-Metal. Of course there some inevitable ballads present like What Are You Gonna Do starting with acoustic guitar and I'll Be There containing a rather good guitar solo.

As a SUMMARY I'd like to say that the material presented on here is definitively not sufficient to recommend this album to anyone with some advanced demands, especially not to people who are into more intricate Prog. There are much better alternatives in Art Rock to this one.
