from Frontiers Records this fall that will be a milking cow for them, because
they releases 3 monster albums at the same day; Work Of Art's 2nd
album and Xorgin's debut album, as well as this: the super vocalist Toby Hitchcock and the
amazingly talented mega musican Erik Martensson release this brilliant recording.
Erik Martensson is the man behind W.E.T with Jeff Scott Soto (another great
album as information if you didn't know that).
The expectations of this album was sky high, after the early samples that you

on " Mercury's Down" he shows both depth, power and sensitivity in his
singing voice. All instruments on the album are played by Erik and all the songs
is writtten by him as well, so actually they should name the band Erik
Mårtensson featuring Toby Hitchcock.
Whatever, these 12 tracks fills me with energy and a positive feeling in these
hard times and the wall-of sound production is astounding and it's sad to say,

My special favourite tracks
are: "A Different Drum", "Mercury's Down" and "This is
