4 stars Dagmahr - an excellent underated band from Canada with two albums in their pockets never gain attention they've desearve, they were a far better and intresting band then most of his conpatriots of that period combining great melodic passages in neo prog vein with darker aproach in instrumental sections very close to VDGG (Still life period). Their second offer As far as we get issued in 2001 show how big potential this band have in prog circles. The music is when energic with intricated arrangements when little mellower with complicated twists and clever interludes between musicians. As far as I remeber this album is little more edgy then the first, the darker passages are more present also keeping a good amount of neo prog atmosphere on every tune. All pieces are truly awesome, with a plus on Lightly Engaged, Perpetual Attrition and Inside the egg, captivating passages, well developed intrumental sections with deep bass lines, the keybords and guitars are impressive most of the time, Pierre Massicotte the keybord player done some fantastic job here with diverse and original motives on his instrument ( we will find him later on in another canadian neo prog band Red Sand). All in all a truly inspired album that gone under the prog radar, but for sure desearve a far more recognition. For me 4 stars easy, and recommended.
