2 stars With plenty of fine moments, a rich keyboard sound reminiscent of Eloy, and Camel-like guitars, Zaragon's debut effort sounds like a winner on paper, but the group fails to create enough compelling compositions and melodies to rise much above mediocrity. The only tracks that work well in their entirety are "Thoughts" and "Lightrace", where layered keyboards and some versatile vocals dominate the flow. Plenty of imaginative changes help to maintain interest. The title cut provides some tasty morsels but not a meal in itself in its 12:46. Some albums are growers but Zaragon does not really provide the returns from repeat listens that would qualify it as a 3 star affair. 2.5 stars rounded down.
