New band from the very busy British progressive rock scene, and this time the whole thing has been written by a newcomer to the scene - Jem Godfrey, who has worked as song writer and producer with Ronan Keating and Atomic Kitten before.

Jem is handling the production, keyboards and most of the vocals on this album, but do get some assistance from three well known musicians from the British progressive rock scene: John Mitchell (Kino, Arena) on guitars and John Jowitt & Andy Edwards (IQ) on bass and drums respectively.

The result is a 6 keyboard driven songs - 2 short catchy, almost pop'ish songs ("Snowman" and "The Other Me"), where Jem's pop background shines through. But the rest shows his fascination for progressive rock. Highlight is mammoth title track - clocking in at 26:35 - which starts off slowly and melodic, has a very good melodic middle part and it builds and builds before it firmly explodes, just listen to the last 10 minutes - pure progressive pleasure.

If you are a fan of the British progressive rock scene, then make sure this album is on your shopping list, because it offers so much virtuosity while we wait for the next Arena, IQ or Kino album...
