Reese Alexander expertly delivers on the follow up to the first part of this duology with another excellently crafted album.

Sometimes there's a hint of Transatlantic, Haken, David Maxim Micic, etc.

Again, Mr. Alexander covers some impressive bases with consistently strong, adventurous songwriting and virtuostic performances across a broad range of instruments including voice. Virtuostic in service to the song, not the over done style of the Dream Theater-esque [and the endless clones they spawned] "Time to blow you away with an album of constant flurries of hemidemisemiquaver (64th) notes played sometimes in harmony just to impress".

I find that I'm liking this quite a lot.

Going with 4.71 PA stars on this one.

As always, your mileage may vary.

Grace and peace to you all,

Cylli (Jim Calistro)
