Some tracks really grew on me

Review
This band mainly belong on the classic rock/Progressive metal shelf , still one moment sounding like Rush, other moments like Deep Purple, little hints of rock opera and then suddenly they sound like a folk rock band! Confused? Yes well I was, this otherwise fine band obviously have a problem with musical identity and or direction! The musicians here are fine and their delivery also, I just have a problem with their many style choices! One is naturally bewildered when playing this album, since it musically comes through as a sampler for a record company (hence the many style variations) not as such a band that is trying to get through the barrier that parts the famous from the unknown!! Can I give you some advice guys? Well here I go anyway, have a sit-down members of the band, narrow the musical field, realize your favorite music style and then go all in !! There is lots of talent here you just have to focus on the main character of your music. What do I know?! Well I have been doing this (reviewing and listening to music for some 40 years now) believe me, I know!! That said, I really liked some of the tunes on this album, especially after 4 – 5 listens (which is always a good thing) some tracks really grew on me!

Meanwhile I will eagerly await your next release, truth be told you guys are good, but you could be GREAT!!
