5.0 out of 5 stars Everything AND the kitchen sink 5 April 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
If you try and judge this album based on the 30 second excerpts offered by Amazon then you've no chance. Each song goes through at least three or four phases alternating prog, metal, balladry and folk in a cacophonous collection, alleviated by calmer, lighter moments. Very reminiscent of early "heavy" Yes with some Zeppelinesque and King Crimsony touches this still has the stamp of modern progressive music, challenging yet tuneful. Just about every musical instrument ever invented sounds like it gets a run out here and whilst I'm happy to give this 5 stars I am happy to accept that this may not be to everyone's taste. Suffice to say you won't be playing this as background music at a dinner party.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everybody! 12 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I too bought this after a great review in a certain Rock magazine. They also gave away a free sampler CD which had "Gloria" on it, which I loved, as it sounded a little different to the normal fodder.

However, this track is not really indicative of the rest of the CD! As others have said, it is a massively eclectic mixture of a huge range of styles, all held together with fantastic harmonies. The keyboards tend to most prominent, and the time signatures are NOT what Frank Zappa called "a pedestrian beat", so if you are after AOR with a standard 4/4 drum beat, then maybe this ain't for you.

It does take some getting used to but, it is a very good, different and challenging album. Worth exploring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best buy of the last 12 months 19 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard about these guys from the rock media and thought they were just another hyped band from the continent, I was intrigued by the comparisons to Yes, Led Zeppelin etc and listened to a couple of songs on you tube. To say this does not them justice is an understatement.

This album is, as some have said, eclectic and has varying rhythms, time signatures but what a blend. I am not enough of a wordsmith to give how I feel bout this CD justice. I cannot get enough of it, it is by far the best CD I have bought in over 12 months. Whilst some of the subject matter is dark I find the whole thing a great listen and I always feel better from listening to it.

Anyone who likes prog, alternative rock with a pop sensibility will love this and I thoroughly recommend it. The only fault I can give is it should have been longer but like all the best things in life the pleasure is in the wanting.
