3 stars A good album to start with for newbies who wants to take a first small step into the world of fusion.

The music here sounds like late 70's or early 80's AOR, tinged and flavoured with improvisational and jazzy elements. No harsh sounds on display here, the songs, the song structures and the production here is smooth. The songs can be relatively complex though, but in the subtle details. Listening closely and intently to the album over time will be a rewarding exploration, as new elements will be discovered every so often.

The main weakness of the album is that there's a bit too many fillers here, and the good tracks here aren't good enough to pull this album out of the average category and up to excellent.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
