Don't listen to the naysayers and rogues. Anything less than five stars is a travesty. Heritage is an hour of brilliant music. The songs are beautifully crafted and the album has the sort of completeness and balance that has always been rare and has become increasingly so as people download and piece together personal playlists. You just don't need to do that with this album. Just take it whole every time. It isn't really heavy, fine, but it is good prog metal with (to my ear) references right back to Red (King Crimson) 1974. I wish that they had played material from this when I saw them live. No death metal vocals - a bonus on this occasion. Some acoustic riffs and quiet passages - sure. But it still has fibre and muscle too. If you really want unrefined power and growling vocals, avoid this, and forever miss a great album. Magnificent, doesn't do it justice. Majestic, is too clichéd. Masterpiece -that'll do.
