3 stars I have owned this album for quite a long time and never get noticed that this is featured in this site as I first considered the music was quite light even though there are prog elements as well. One thing I noticed that correspond to prog was the fact that the vocal characteristic was somewhat similar or in the vein of Jon Anderson (Yes). Overall, this is a very enjoyable album as the music flows nicely from one track to another and they all form one cohesive whole that makes this album worth-repeating. The beauty lies on its good composition by combining excellent harmonies between keyboard and guitar. yes, if we look at ho guitar and keyboard are played they confirm the musical category under neo-prog sub genre. Especially when it is combined with how vocal overlays the music throughout all tracks featured here.

The most favorite track is off course "Ahead of Your Time" as it's having the longest duration compared to other tracks. Not just that, it demonstrates the wonderful elements of symphonic prog music through the use of keyboard as well as guitar. "Carrie" and "Heroes" are also other examples of how the compositions were carefully crafted to produce good music. I can enjoy this album on the basis of playing it in its entirety from start to end. The music flows nicely and I can feel the relaxed nuances generated by the music.

Overall, it's a good album that combines nice harmonies of keyboard and guitar combined with quite melodic vocal line as melody maker. Keep on proggin' ...!
