A great album...vocals similar to Labrie in DT...too bad these guys didnt put out a follow up

From: Rycheage Date: February 20, 2003 at 4:17
Excellent prog rock in the vein of Arena and Without Warning. Not as hard as Dream Theater perhaps more on the line of Shadow Gallery. "Alone" is the masterpiece of this CD. Too bad they didn't follow it up.

All in all, not a bad debut despite the Dream Theater influence throughout (including Rain Irving's vocals). I'd like to hear more from this band, preferably on the radio, but I won't hold my breath. There is room for growth as this band truly breaks away from the Dream Theater mold and into their own.

Completely in agreement with the 3 comments above...good album but too much influenced by DT...a softer one i must say.For me "One By One" is their anthem (a little bit AOR-ish).The rest of the songs are quite interesting with all these changes of tempo typical of Prog Rock bands.70/100
