5 stars Exciting.

Yes, I read in the reviews that someone hasn't been this excited about a Neo-Prog record in a long time; that kind of statement always makes me curious because, I too, hasn't been giddy about this genre since I discovered Contagion from Arena.

Thank you Tzirmay, you made me a happy man. Sometimes it pays to dig a bit deeper.

Silhouette are very good melody makers, underline very. Far from the amateurism that resumes too often Neo-Prog (Illuvatar, Quidam, Galleon, Big Picture, Violet District and oh so much more), Silhouette are jumping from nobody to WOW! with this album. It sounds surprisingly big, aerial almost, wrapped in a purple-pink fog. They obviously did their homework, pumping strenght from Clive Nolan and Mark Kelly but giving an extra push of their own emotionnal sound, therefore forging something highly vocally melodic and original.

Congratulations to the band for the rejoycing art work (what a cover!) and giving us a new classic in the suffering genre that is Neo-Progressive Rock. Yes, I said it: classic.

Hard to describe, but in two words: Exceptionnally Tasty.
