5 stars A great album My first Belgium group and a great start it is. I think they are unique in their sound although we can find similarities to Genesis, Yes and even Supertramp - whenever the electric piano is used. All of the lyrics are great combining Green issues with legends. Wisdom is a great opener, lots of keyboard use that evolves as the seconds pass and a great singing. Superb openner, There are even touches of Pink Floyd when the guitar plays. Sparkling jaw opens with singing a chorus without music. Then the music flows inside with a slow blend later the pace grows. Moments is a great tribute to Genesis with "super's ready " mentioned and a beautiful singing. In the reign of queen pollution ? is very strong piece with "green" agenda, very true to our days. It starts very slow and get stronger and faster as the moments pass. The jester ?is a beautiful song. Starts lovely with the electric piano, continues very slowly and later a faster pace. A very Supertramp song in my opinion. Mister street fair = great piece. Again starts slow and evolves. Again a bit of "Green" in the lyrics. Veru powerful toward the middle. Rock, sea, and tree - the longest and most powerful song for the ending of the album. Starts slowly with nice singing then evolves to a very energetic song. Reminding me of Genesis. 2 bonus tracks very short and very "so so" - The birds are gone and , I'm nowhere
