5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic., 8 Jan 2014
I have had this CD for sometime but repeatedly play it. It's quite hard to describe,a mixture of prog,rock,classical & jazz. Sounds like a hell of a mixture but works extremely well. Very melodic & fluent.I have just purchased their previous CD Rebus (via Discdogs-difficult to find) on the strength of this recording. Highly recommended for fans of orchestral rock with a slight jazz feel.

A fascinating read to those in the know.Although a work of fiction,this is not too far from what could have been.
A gritty modern day noire that I would thoroughly recommend.

What has happened to the symphonic powerhouse they once were?
This album start's of in mediocracy & succesfully sustain's it.Wishy washy tune's & theme's-all very twee & pretty but nothing that grip's you or catches the interest or imagination.Nothing make's you sit up & take notice.The fan's want a hell of a lot more than they are getting or… Read more
