|There is a spiritual element to their music, but not so concrete and steeped in religion that they can't have a broader context. The arrangements are suitable, aided by the vocals, where even in harmonies they are tending toward the higher ranges. I guess Jon Anderson (Yes) would be a good comparision, though the tone here is different, vocalist Tim Brooks wouldn't be confused for Anderson. There are times, too, when Brooks reminds of Steve Hogarth, more in delivery ("Choices") than anything.|

|The hardest driving track is "Set Adrift" (my personal favorite track here). I find there is a small Neil Peart influence here in the lyrics, the use of metaphor to describe our interpersonal relationships. It took a while for this disk to grow on me, but after several listens, I found much to like about it. Recommended, though not neccesarily essential listening.|

|This is indeed a great CD. I bought my copy back in 1990, and always liked it. Took the dust off it this year, and found out how I was missing the album. I wish I knew other works from these guys. They are probably like the band I have: music is not the first profession, and they did an awesome job, but it does not pay to go on... Anyway, the opening piece "First Impression" will please even our grandmas (and from then on, maybe they start loving prog rock)|

|Bruno, This was the only CD recorded by Animator. They disbanded in the early- to mid-1990's. You are correct that music was not their first profession.|
