The first track which is epic in size has some great sax work reminiscent of Pink Floyd. The work is wonderful and atmospheric. Full of interesting bits and drama. I think this would be great for fans of melodic prog and should be a stand out album for fans of IO Earth and Renaissance thanks to Tree’s haunting vocals. I think that many other people the rate albums are going to give this 5 out of 5. So don’t let my rating fool you. I reserve the 5 star rating for albums I would pay the band to come play live at our house and this isn’t quite there.
